Please read from Randy Schoenberg: I’m donating $25k to support JewishGen2.0. Here’s why. #JewishGenUpdates

Avraham Groll

(Please see a message below from Randy Schoenberg, which I am sending on his behalf)

Dear Friends,

I want to tell you how thrilled I am with Avraham Groll’s announcement of the JewishGen 2.0 plan. As you may know, JewishGen is overseen by a skeletal staff and with the help of extremely dedicated volunteers. The 2.0 plan will allow JewishGen to enter a new stage of growth and development – with the most important goal of benefitting you. You will have new tools, new features, and a great, modern experience on a site that is mobile friendly.

Because of this, I am donating $25k in support of this effort. Please join me with a gift of any amount today. All donations are being matched 1:1 up to $50k, so your support will mean a lot.

If you can’t donate online, please call the main JewishGen number at 646-492-5972, and a team member will process your gift over the phone.

Thank you for partnering with me and JewishGen in support of JewishGen2.0. It is the single most significant initiative undertaken by JewishGen in decades. With your help, we will be successful.
