Latvia SIG #Latvia Yizkor Book Project, February 2011 #latvia

Shalom,

February, a short month? We at the Yizkor Book Project have laughed in the
face of this short month and are pleased to announce that we have added and
updated a record number projects during it. Also during this month, a number
of new, exciting projects have begun to brew and, hopefully, in my next
report I'll be able to provide more details of them.

This month I would like to send out a sincere salute a wonderful group of
people who are currently volunteering their free time in translating Hebrew
and Yiddish into English. Their uniqueness is that each of them has worked
on quite a number of projects and helped their advance for the benefit of us
all. So my humble thanks go out this month to: Ruthy Erez, Yocheved
Klausner, Sara Mages, Thia Persoff, Pamela Russ, Francine Shapiro & Esther
Snyder.

While we're talking about translations, if any of you out there are
interested in helping to finance the translation of the 47 page section on
Lviv (Lemberg) >from Pinkas Hakehillot Poland (Encyclopedia of Jewish
Communities, Poland), please contact me privately. In general, if you have
interest in financing any of the articles >from these pinkasim
(encyclopedias) I'd be happy to hear >from you and I'll explain how it can be
done.
