If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Give it more money to continue its work.

This is an amazing organization that has preserved and help spread Yiddish books and now Jewish culture. Although I have supported this organization for at least fifteen years, I moved one town away seven years ago and collaborate with them as a Jewish communal professional.

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

taking students and family to visit the Center, attend events, and read their materials.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

consider opening a branch in NYC and/or Israel.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

its mission, enthusiasm, the Center's design.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

great

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

implement the programs it envisioned when it expanded the Center (fully paid for but new educational wing is underused due to budget). Also, it could build a small branch in NYC and/or Israel.

Ways to make it better...

they had more multi-generational events.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

location, new mission now that books have been saved

One thing I'd also say is that...

Truly remarkable organization that saved a literature from destruction.
