Irving Bernstein, executive vice-chairman of the United Jewish Appeal, told 50 editors attending the annual convention of the American Jewish Press Association here that 1975 will be the second best year in the history of the UJA with a total of $550 million expected, compared with $675 million last year.
Bernstein said cash collections were 30 percent ahead of those of last year at the same period in the campaign even though 1975 pledges to date were 12 percent behind those of last year at the same time. He said the results were an indication of the way American Jewry views the seriousness of the present economic situation in Israel.
