Yizkor Book - Jezierzany & Surroundings - Update #galicia

Judy Brodkey
 

Shalom -

More stories >from Jezierzany and the surrounding towns are waiting for
you.

Thanks to your collective generosity, new sections of the Memorial
(Yizkor) Book for Jezierzany & Surroundings have been translated >from
Yiddish and Hebrew into English. Visit
https://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/Ozeryany/Ozeryany.html
to read the translated sections.

In these pages, you'll meet some of the wonderful people of Jezierzany and
learn about some of the most important issues they faced during their
lifetimes. You'll also read about small details of everyday living, the
town's synagogues, a major conflict within their Jewish community,
Jezierzany's powerful response to a military draft, bravery in the midst
of tragedy during the Holocaust and much more.

We've almost reached our goal of ensuring that the stories from
Jezierzany and surrounding towns will live on. We have made great
progress in translating the book into English. We only need to raise an
estimated $1000 - $1500 to translate the remainder of the book. Once
the book is completely translated, we plans to publish a print version
thanks to the JewishGen Yizkor Books in Print Project.

Whether it's your first contribution or you've decided to make another
gift, your donation can be made at
https://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=23

Scroll down to Jezierzany and enter your donation amount there.
JewishGen has numerous Yizkor Book funds so make sure you fill in the
amount for Jezierzany.

If you prefer, you can send a check to JewishGen, Edmond J. Safra
Plaza, 36 Battery Place, New York, NY 10280. Be sure to indicate that
this is a donation for the Jezierzany Memorial book. In order to ensure
that your donation is correctly credited to the Jezierzany fund, please
also let me know the amount of your contribution. The minimum
allowable contribution is $10.

In Every Generation, We Tell the Story
Passover is still a few months away but each year we are instructed to
tell the story of our ancestors' journey out of Egypt, lest we forget
where we came >from and the lessons learned along the way. Our
ancestors >from Jezierzany and surrounding areas intentionally left their
precious stories for us and our descendants; they deserve to be shared.

Please share this message with friends and family members interested
in Jezierzany and nearby towns. If you have any questions, please let
me know. Thank you very much.

Sincerely,
Judy Brodkey
