We would like to show recognition for the incredible work of two wonderful people:
Volunteer Manager at JewishGen.org
Karen has played an integral role with the JewishGen team by reaching out to current volunteers and making sure their needs are met as projects are carried out. She has been especially helpful to the Yizkor Book team in assisting our efforts to organize our internal data as well as in reaching out to over 100 members of the Yizkor Book Team.
Thank you for all your help! We look forward to continued success working with you!
Communications Coordinator at JewishGen.org
As the head of communications for JewishGen, Nancy has worked tirelessly to prepare newsletters, Facebook posts, announcements, and more. She was able to step in to assist the Yizkor Book Project, and to help us get the monthly newsletter off the ground. She has helped us to communicate transparently with the incredible YB Team and to convey accurately all the wonderful work that we are doing for the growing Yizkor Book community.
Thank you for your help and we hope to continue working with you in the near future!
We are expanding the Yizkor Book Team!!
