Updating our Website

It’s been three years since we have made any major changes to our website. Since we are currently changing web hosts, we decided to take the opportunity to make several of our web pages more user friendly. These changes will allow our site to be available and accessible to users on all platforms, especially those using smartphones. Additionally, we will soon be able to offer our donors access to their giving history. More information on that will follow shortly. This summer, be sure to log onto www.jfr.org to read new rescue stories, to check out our updates, and to see our redesigned pages.

Planning for Next Year

Spring and summer are busy seasons for the education department at the JFR. We are arranging the next locations of the traveling exhibit, Whoever Saves a Single Life…Rescuers of Jews During the Holocaust, and coordinating speaking engagements featuring members of the JFR’s Speaker’s Bureau. Currently, we are arranging the loan of the exhibit to the Rust Library in Leesburg, Virginia beginning September 15th. On September 23rd, in conunction with the exhibit, I will be speaking to the community on the importance of rescue during the Holocaust. It is great to see the exhibit getting such exposure across the country. Those of you who are interested in hosting the exhibit should also try to arrange for a member of our Speaker’s Bureau to speak on a related topic. Members of the JFR’s Speakers Bureau are experts in their individual fields and provide a plethora of information and resources on selected topics.
