South Africa SIG #SouthAfrica Volunteer help for Yizkor Books In Print Project #southafrica
Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
The Yizkor Books In Print Project is a new initiative to print and publish
Yizkor Books that are fully translated, so hard copies will be available for
purchase by the descendants of these communities, university and temple
libraries and museums.
The Yizkor Books In Print Project is looking for volunteer help for the
Submit application for Copyright, Library of Congress Number, ISBN number.
Keep track of submittals and responses.
Deal with publicity for books. Send out announcements to all researchers
signed up for each community covered in the book to be published. Develop a
list of libraries, university libraries with Judaic collections, Holocaust
Memorials, temple libraries, etc. that would likely be interested in
purchasing copies of the "Yizkor Books in Print." Send off periodic
announcements to these institutions about new translations of Yizkor books
now available in print.
If you feel that you are able to take on one of these tasks and devote an
hour or two a week, please contact the "Yizkor Books in Print" Advisor -
Joel Alpert whose contact details can be found at:
I would also like to take this opportunity to wish you all a Hannuka full of
