Yizkor Book Project, September 2012 #subcarpathia

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>


September was enjoyable punctuated with quite a number of Jewish holidays,
including the Sukkot festival which begins now. In general, then, our
thoughts were in other directions, however, I'm pleased to say that we did
manage to make progress in a number of directions in the Yizkor Book
Project. As always, there are a number of new projects brewing - more about
these in coming reports...

Although we have over 700 projects already going, at various levels of
completion - 72 totally translated, I know that there are so many Yizkor
books that were published that we have yet to reach. Clearly, we have a lot
of work on our plate and, fortunately, we have a growing number of
volunteers who are taking part in this very combined effort.

And on volunteers, we are endeavoring to list all those of you who have
contributed to the success of the Yizkor Book Project over the years. There
are already 350 names on this list which continues to grow and it can be
seen at:


So, does this encourage you to get involved? If you are, I would be more
than very pleased to hear >from you.
