The World Congress is one of the fastest growing Jewish organizations in the world, and now includes almost 65 member organizations in 15 countries. Dues paid by member organizations constitute the majority of our small operating budget, but we need to continue growing. Now, more than ever, your personal contribution as a Friend of the World Congress can help us to continue to perform the work so desperately needed.
Elsewhere in this issue of the Digest you'll read about some of our ongoing activities and recent accomplishments, which we hope will bear real results in improving the lives of gay, lesbian, and bisexual Jews worldwide, many of whom continue to live in dual shadows of homophobia and anti-Semitism. Our immediate goal is to grow the Friends of the World Congress program to over 500 members; with each Friend making a modest donation, sufficient money could be raised to fund our activities, such as:
International development work in Latin America.
Encouraging and supporting new member organizations in Eastern Europe.
Assisting the development of existing member organizations.
Continuing the development of our relationships with the World Jewish Congress, European Council of Jewish Communities, Council of Jewish Federations, and other national and international Jewish bodies.
A minimum US$18 donation entitles you to receive direct-mailed copies of the Digest, other communications from the World Congress, and acknowledgment of your support (if desired) in a future issue of the Digest.
