Shalom,

I believe I surprised even myself with the quantity and volume of new
and updated materials added into the Yizkor Book Project during that
ever so short month, February.

We are certainly blessed with a great number of extremely
conscientious volunteers who provide these translations and I would
like to point three very particularly extensive entries added now which
involved many hours of work by the volunteers who prepared them.
They are:

- Chisinau, Moldova
(Encyclopedia of Jewish Communities in Romania, Volume II)

- Liberec (Reichenberg), Czech Republic
(The Jews and Jewish Communities of Bohemia in the past and present)

- Vilnius, Lithuania
(Encyclopedia of Jewish Communities in Poland, Volume VIII)

Apart >from new entries and projects, we regularly receive additional
updates for existing projects and, as I pointed last time, some of these
projects are very close to completion - a very gratifying feeling for all
those involved. We do have more than 700 hundred projects currently
running and there are many that need assistance to go forward. If you
see a project with only the table of contents translated, this is a fairly
sure sign that it's waiting patiently for someone to take on. If you'd
like to know what's involved in coordinating such a project, please feel
free to write to me.
