Jadow, Poland Yizkor Book Translation Project #general


Eden Joachim <esjoachim@...>
 

In March I announced the new project to translate Sefer Jadow, the yizkor
book of Jadow, Poland. That message appears at the end of this message for
informational purposes.

Unfortunately, no contributions to the established JewishGenerosity fund
have been made since then. Jadow was not a large town and there are only 20
people listed in the JGFF.

Thanks to Lance Ackerfeld and his team, the English article >from Sefer Jadow
is being typed and the first part is now available for reading at
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/jadow/jade007.html

If you have an interest in Jadow or any of the shtetlach in that area (see
below), please consider a contribution to help us translate the book. The
Yizkor Book project can only be successful with your interest and support.

Thank you,
Eden Joachim
Coordinator, Sefer Jadow

Those of you listed in the JGFF for Jadow have already been notified of the
project to translate Sefer Jadow, the Yizkor book of Jadow, Poland.
I wanted to let you know that the Necrology >from the book has been posted to
the website. Thanks go to Lance Ackerfeld for his assistance and general
leadership as Coordinator of the Yizkor Book project.
You may view the Necrology at
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/jadow/jadow.html.

In addition to the list of martyrs >from Jadow, the lists for nearby
shtetlach are also included for Ostrowek, Baczki, Jasiorowka and Lopianka.
Contributions toward the translation of the book may be made by going to

.

Jadow is 31 miles ENE of Warsaw, 12 miles SE of Wyszkow, 17 miles WNW of
Wegrow and 20 miles N of Minsk Mazowiecki. Jadow was not a large town in
general, but the1500 Jews living there in 1921 were 75% of the town's
population.

Thanks for your support and interest in this worthy project.
