Two major Jewish organisations are battling over $130 million donated annually by American Jews.
The American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JDC) and the Jewish Agency for Israel have been haggling in private over a share of overseas
fundraising for a couple of years.
But in recent weeks, the argument has spilled out into the open.
At issue is a formula which divides money from the Jewish Federations of North America (JFNA ) between the two bodies, favouring the Jewish Agency by a margin of three to one.
