Dear LitvakSIGdom

Your LitvakSIG Online Journal is pleased to announce the
e-publication of a second article in a series about Lithuanian Jews who
appear on Postage Stamps. As Vitaly Charny writes in the introduction to
*Lithuanian Jews on Postage Stamps ~ Ben Shahn 1898-1969*:
"The painter, muralist, and printmaker, Ben Shahn, who was born in 1898 in Kovno, Russia (now Kaunas, Lithuania), into a family of Jewish craftsmen, moved with his family to New York City in 1906. "

To find out more about this great 20th century modern painter,
calligrapher, and muralist please go to

And to read the wealth of additional articles available to you via the
LitvakSIG Online Journal, please consult the Table of Contents at

I hope to see many of you in Toronto, and to hear about your ideas for
future articles.

Shalom,
Judi Langer-Surnamer Caplan, Editor LitvakSIG Online Journal
