Galician communities -- Krosno and Wieliczka, Poland, and Ozerna,
Stryy, Terebovlya, and Zolochiv, Ukraine.]

Shalom,

I am pleased to note that in July the Yizkor book Project saw the
completion of no fewer than 3 projects, bringing the number of our
finalized projects to the outstanding milestone of one hundred such
projects.

The projects that were completed in July were:

- Kamyanyets, Belarus (The People Who Lived Among Us) -
prepared and submitted by Sherwin Sokolov
- Serock, Poland (The book of Serock) -
coordinated by Sandra Krisch and Dorothy Lipsky
- Sierpc, Poland (The Community of Sierpc; Memorial Book) -
coordinated by Howard Orenstein and Israel H. Mida

To say that the work of these people is remarkable would be rather
an understatement and my sincere thanks go out to them for their
dedication and persistence coordinating these projects. I hope that
their success will encourage the coordinators of the many other
projects that we are running, to press on with their particular project,
leading it through to its successful completion.

Each of our Yizkor Book projects, like any endeavor, begins with a
few small steps and this past month, the first "footprint" of the
Soklowa Podlaski Yizkor Book Project was placed online. In the near
future, a Translations Fund will be set up for it and will appear with
our other 75 funds already appearing. These funds allow you to
help support these important projects - every donation is a small
(or large) step towards seeing more and more of the translations
appear online.

Now to facts and figures for July.
