Dear JewishGen Family,
Today is #GivingTuesday - a global day of giving back - and it falls less
than a month before Chanukah when we kindle lights of hope.
In this spirit of hope for the future, please give back by supporting
JewishGen, whose mission is to "preserve our history for future
Because of JewishGen, and its more than 1,000 volunteers, people can learn
about their Jewish family history - no matter their location! With the
simple click of a button (and good internet access!), JewishGen allows
people to access information that previously would have required a
tremendous expense, and countless hours travelling the world.
In the words of one donor: "Sadly, the family members who might have
answered my many questions have all passed on. Therefore, it is only
through sites such as yours that I may find answers."
Our goal is to raise $18,000 *today* to help subsidize our services. A gift
of any amount will be greatly appreciated, and collectively, make a
tremendous difference. As in past years, gifts of $100 or more will
qualify for our Value Added Services.
FREE GIFT! All JewishGen users who contribute to our Giving Tuesday
campaign - no matter the amount - will receive an exclusive link to view
the upcoming film "My Dear Children" (which is scheduled to premiere
internationally in theaters and on PBS in 2018). This is the first-ever
documentary about the anti-Jewish massacres that swept what is today
Ukraine, Moldova, and Belarus immediately following WWI. These massacres
are an often overlooked piece of Jewish history, and we hope you find
this film informative and meaningful. (A trailer can be viewed here:
