THIS BIG MEAL
Every noontime, day after day, 40,000 Jew-
ish children in Asian and African lands sit
down to a solid meal, courtesy of you — the
contributor to the United Jewish Appeal.
For breakfast, in the hovels they call
home — they had scraps, or nothing. For
supper — they’ll have to scrounge and see.
Lunch is their one big nourishing meal.
How big? Through the Joint Distribution
Committee, a UJA member agency, tons of
meat, huge quantities of eggs, bread and rice
are provided. But the meaning of a full plate
to a desperately hungry child cannot be
measured. It's as big as life itself.
Meanwhile, for other tens of thousands of
young people around the globe, hope for the
future also rests with UJA. Yes, almost two
hundred thousand children and teenagers
count on UJA-supported programs for food,
shelter, clothing, care and education.
For these youngsters, your gift to UJA
buys hope where there is hunger, bright-
ness where there is despair, health where
there is sickness, a future where there is
What greater things can your dollars buy?
Give a generous increased gift, then, to the
1961 United Jewish Appeal. Give today.
Save and Build Lives-Strengthen the Settlements
IN 1961, THE UNITED JEWISH APPEAL MUST:
Speed integration of 320,000 unabsorbed immigrants
in Israel by:
Giving 130,000 farm settlers the supplies they need
to become economically independent;
Expanding welfare and training aid for over 115,000
aged, handicapped and youthful immigrants;
Housing many of 40,000 still in miserable huts;
Receiving and absorbing 30,000 to 35,000 newcom-
ers expected in 1961.
Extend relief, medical and rehabilitation aid to some
255,000 distressed Jews-almost half of them children
—in Europe, Africa and Asia.
Provide resettlement assistance for 5,500 refugees
seeking new lives in the United States.
