Review for Yiddishkayt, Los Angeles, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The descendants of Eastern Europe emigrees now have a vehicle to experience re-emergence of interest in Yiddish as a secular cultural movement. This organization takes over where prior generations had few non-religious-affiliation opportunities to revive Yiddish roots of their ancestry. From concerts, to language teaching, book fairs, and other events, an ambitious effort.

Review for JEWISH WORLD WATCH, Encino, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

In a world of so many urgencies competing for attention, work, politics, personal lives, it's so easy to forget the contemporaneous occurences of extreme autrocities against populaces. Our tikun olam obligation has a guardian angel in this organization's constant vigilance, and in undertaking simple low tech ways of helping the victims (like the solar cookers project)

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

Reach out beyond Darfur and Congo, as well as enhance publicity of need for attention

Ways to make it better...

I had more time to allocate to their activities
