NEW YORK (Jul. 16)
The Concerned Jewish Students of Greater Boston has managed to get student representation on almost all committees of the Combined Jewish Philanthropies and students now comprise at least 10 percent of all CJP committees, according to a report in NETWORK, the publication of the World Union of Jewish Students. Reporting that there were also student representatives on the CJP Board of Trustees, the publication added that the Concerned Jewish Students had been invited to participate in Boston’s Jewish Community Council. The student group also has taken a major role in publicizing the needs of various local Jewish day schools for funding. The report also stated that the student group had obtained an interim allocation “of up to $12,000″ for summer projects from the CJP and had almost completed negotiations for establishment of a Greater Boston Jewish Students Project Agency to serve as a source of funds for Jewish youth programs, “especially innovative ones,” now lacking funds.
