I was pleased to see that during April, quite a few of our "veteran" and
newer Yizkor Book projects made great leaps and bounds in the translations
and pictures that were added in during this month. Some of the projects are
now just a hairsbreadth away of being completely translated and this has
only come about through the perseverance and dedication of the coordinators
involved in them and, of course, the generous financial support of donors
and the selfless, conscientious volunteers behind the scenes. Still, to
continue this sacred work we are always in need of further financial support
and if you are able to assist in any way to one of the 75 or so Translation
Funds appearing at:
you will have done your piece in helping present generations and those to
come, to read and learn about our lost communities.

Something that also pleased me greatly was that Joel Alpert, the Yizkor Book
in Print Project Coordinator, recently informed me that the 37th Yizkor Book
in Print publication - the "Stawiski Memorial Book" has now become
available. My thanks go out to the YBIP team that made this possible and to
Jan Meisels Allen for leading this project >from its inception to this
publishing stage. Joel also pointed out that it is now three years since the
Yizkor Book in Print Project first began rolling out these unique books and
remarkable achievements have been achieved over this time for this, another
round of applause is definitely forthcoming to his team.
