Yizkor Book Project, May 2011 #rabbinic


Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

So, May was a record breaking month for the Yizkor Book Project and, in
particular, for those of you whose eyes are turned in the direction of
Lithuanian communities, you might say it was "bonanza" month.

In addition, to adding a remarkable number of articles >from Pinkas Lita
(Encyclopedia of Jewish Communities, Lithuania), we also received the very
generous donation by Josef Rosin and Joel Alpert of the detailed community
articles appearing >from their book called "Protecting Our Litvak Heritage".
This month we've added in a number of communities and in coming months we
will continue with this endeavor.

This is not to say that other countries were badly neglected this month and
you'll see below that there were new additions >from Poland, Hungary,
Slovakia and the Ukraine. Of course, we also continued to update existing
projects that our dedicated coordinators continue to send in.

Now, if the book you are interested isn't yet online or the translation you
are after doesn't appear, perhaps you'd be interested in coordinating a
project to see that it does go online. No need to be frightened of this
challenge - I'm here providing Yizkor Book "coaching" services <g> and will
help you set up a project and see it become a reality. So, now I'm just
waiting for your message...
