One hundred fifty-six communities all across America will participate in the third annual United Jewish Appeal Super Sunday on January 23, with a fundraising goal of $30 million, Jerome Dick of Washington, D.C., UJA Super Sunday national chairman announced today.

“Thousands of volunteers in communities from Orange County, California to Orange County, New York, from Tucson to Tidewater — and out to Honolulu, too — will be making tens of thousands of phone calls in the biggest one-day fundraising event in our history,” said Dick, a UJA national vice chairman who was also chairman of the first two Super Sundays. “Our goal is to open the public phase of the 1983 UJA/community campaign by reaching more people and raising more money in a single day than ever before.”

On Super Sunday ’82, more than 35,000 volunteers in 139 U.S. communities raised almost $26.9 million, a record amount for a one-day mass appeal.
