Yizkor Book Project, June 2017 #rabbinic

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>


You will undoubtedly notice that, compared to previous hectic months,
June was somewhat slower in the Yizkor Book Project but then again,
numbers aren't everything... We have been kept very busy expanding
quite a few of our existing projects, some of which will be completed
in the very near future and this is certainly something to look
forward to.

We did also manage to complete yet another project this last month -
this time for Didyliv, Ukraine that was kindly presented to the YB
Project by William Leibner. His name is associated with a
considerable number of projects and we do salute him for his untiring
dedication to preparing this unique material.

Apart >from that, the Yizkor Books in Print Project presented its 56th
and 57th hard cover book in June and this continues to be a very
ongoing, expanding project, undoubtedly thanks to the devoted team
behind it. The books published were:

- "Yizkor Book of Ostrow Mazowiecka (Number 2)" - which joins the
previous published book we have on this community. The project was
ably coordinated by Michael Richman and expertly translated and edited
by Gary S. Schiff.
- "Zabrze (Hindenburg) Yizkor Book" - compiled by William Leibner -
yes, that familiar name appears again and, once again, we send out our
thanks to him.

Note that these books and all the books we publish in the YBIP Project
continue to be freely available for reading in the Yizkor Book site,
an a link to our Translations Index appears at the end of this report.
