The United Jewish Communities’ Board of Trustees voted Sunday in favor of a “fair share” dues plan. Under the plan — which still must be approved by the Delegates Assembly, meeting on Tuesday — the dues each Jewish federation owes to the umbrella organization will be determined as a percentage of the total amount each raises in its annual fund-raising campaign. In the past, UJC got revenue by taking a percentage of the money the federations contributed for overseas needs. The Board of Trustees also voted to continue spending at current rates, until a new budget is presented in June. The UJC’s budget is approximately $42 million per year.
