We would like to thank the New York Public Library, Dorot Division, for assisting us by making copies of the Pinkas HaKehillot chapters for our translators.

Please consider making a donation to the Yizkor Book projects listed at http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=23 which need financial support to be translated. If you would like to donate the funds to have a chapter from a Pinkas HaKehillot volume translated by a professional translator, please contact Joyce Field.
