Dr. Borchsenius, a Lutheran minister who was actively in- volved in rescuing Jews during the Nazi occupation of his na- tive Denmark, will speak on "The Future of the Judeo- Christian IIeritage." His ex- ploits led to his being called "The Shooting Priest." Pastor Borchsenius has devoted his life to studying attd writing bout Jews and Judaism, and is author of many books per- taining to the Jewish people, their history and heroes, and Israel. He also has written a biography of Ben-Gurion, and a history of anti-Semitism. Pastor Borchsenius has not been particularly popular in church circles because of his refusal, as a matter of theo- logical principle, to convert Jews to Christianity. He faced a charge of heresy on this score but the move was abandoned when he won his bishop's sup- port. He is a much-sought-after lecturer on Jewish topics, be- cause of his vivid and engross- ing style.

Jewish Family, Child Service Hears Report At Its Annual Meet A eventful year marked by consolidating and strengthen- ing existing services rather than expansion was described by President Albert Hanan to the members of the Jewish Family and Child Service at their annual meeting March 25, 1964. Itanan explained that the accent on consolidation rather than expansion in scope, and number of services was due to substantial curtaihnent of in- come from the agency's two major sources of income. "In its 1963 campaign, the United Good Neighbors sus- tained a considerable loss of revenue which it had to pass on to its beneficiary agencies in the form of reduced alloca- tions," said Hanan. "Our allo- cation was consequently re- duced. "The Isaac Cooper trust which has helped sustain this agency for many years has, as its principal asset, a piece of income producing real prop- erty. The vagaries of the real estate rental market, being what they are, we received a considerable amount less from', the Cooper trust than we had been receiving..." "The U.G.N. tells us, and our real estate consultants advise us, that we cannot expect an alleviation of these conditions for some time." Hanan then described the services of the agency as fol- lows: "Ours has been an agency dedicated to" the lal'ogr'essiVe extension of services as needs arise. It was founded in 1892 as the Ladies' Hebrew Benevo- lent Society and consisted of a group of highly motivated vol- unteers whose main purpose was to supply food, clothing and shelter to the poor. As con- cepts in social work changed md broadened, so did the serv- ices provided by this agency increase. Over the years we have evolved into a much more complicated social organization furnishing a variety of services to individuals and family groups, helping them to make adjustments through counseling given them by highly skilled rofessionals. Perhaps our chief function now is to prevent fam- ily breakdown. This result we strive to achieve by providing services, in' four main cate- gories: First, are counseling services. These are in the fields of mari- tal problems, parent-child rela- tionships, aging with its myriad ramifications, unmarried par- enthood, employment, prob- lems resulting from physical and mental illness, and helping Immigrants and newcomers ad- just to their new country. Second, we give direct finan- cial help. This basic service :continues to be an integral part of our program, although in slightly altered form. We give substantial financial aid to a number of Jewish persons who are not eligible for public as- sistance. We have accepted the responsibility of directly assist- ing Jewish immigrants to settle in and become integrated into this community. Our commit- ment in this respect, if meas- ured by the respective quotas accepted from the Hebrew Im- migrant Aid Society, is greater than the average of other Jew- ish communities of comparable size. This agency also gives al- lowances to those who wish to observe the Jewish dietary laws but whose marginal in- comes need supplementation in order that they may be able to afford to do so. Third, we provide placement of individuals in residences that is finding foster homes for dependent children so that they can develop normally, and placing old persons in private residences and nursing homes so that they can continue to function as individuals. Fourth (and final) is the work we do on behalf of other agencies. Most important in this phase is the processing of applications for admission of persons into the Caroline Kline Go]land Home. We also assist the National Council of Jewish Women in the selection process of its Scholarship Program. (To Be Continued Next Issue)
