Yizkor Book Project, February 2013 #yiddish



I believe I surprised even myself with the quantity and volume of new and
updated materials added into the Yizkor Book Project during that ever so
short month, February.

We are certainly blessed with a great number of extremely conscientious
volunteers who provide these translations and I would like to point three
very particularly extensive entries added now which involved many hours of
work by the volunteers who prepared them. They are:

- Chisinau, Moldova (Encyclopedia of Jewish Communities in Romania, Volume
- Liberec (Reichenberg), Czech Republic (The Jews and Jewish Communities of
Bohemia in the past and present)
- Vilnius, Lithuania (Encyclopedia of Jewish Communities in Poland, Volume

Apart >from new entries and projects, we regularly receive additional updates
for existing projects and, as I pointed last time, some of these projects
are very close to completion - a very gratifying feeling for all those
involved. We do have more than 700 hundred projects currently running and
there are many that need assistance to go forward. If you see a project with
only the table of contents translated, this is a fairly sure sign that it's
waiting patiently for someone to take on. If you'd like to know what's
involved in coordinating such a project, please feel free to write to me.
