Prominent Jewish leaders from communities across the nation pledged a record total of $15,821,500 to the regular 1982 United Jews Appeal/community campaign as UJA’s annual Prime Minister’s Mission came to a close last Thursday in Jerusalem. The 1982 total represents a 25.1 percent increase over 1981 pledges by the same donors of $12,652,000, UJA national chairman Herschel Blumberg announced. The 1982 pledges include $730,000 raised in a special women’s fund raising caucus, Blumberg said. Spouses were invited to participate in the mission for the first time this year. The American Jewish leaders also pledged an additional $980,000 for Project Renewal, bringing the total pledged by these donors to $9,808,700.
