I grew up in Miami (not the South but a suburb of NY or Havana) but because of my involvement in a high school youth group befriended many Jews in the South. I think what they have done to preserve the history of the Jewish South as well as to educate those in the South is fabulous.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

reading and learning about the Jews of the South.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

really make a difference in the South.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every six months

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
