The advancement of Reform Judaism in the future is in great measure dependent upon the effectiveness with which we complement our work with youth, both on a national and regional scale, now.

We know the difficulties that face the Executive Board in the apportionment of the funds of the Union to the various departments of our body and appreciate the way in which they have discharged their task. We urge, however, that in view of the vital importance of the youth program to Reform Judaism that consideration be given to a more extensive and effective allotment for this work in the future. Thus not only the youth of our congregations, but the congregations themselves and the Union will be benefited.
