Witness: Six-Day War – 40 Years Later – 1967-2007
This lecture is part of a series of exciting activities of the Gershon Jacobson Jewish Continuity Foundation, established to perpetuate the legacy of the veteran journalist, Gershon Jacobson. His 70 years were dedicated to telling the inside story of the Jewish people, celebrating Jewish pride and making Jews smile. The GJCF Foundation is committed to perpetuate Gershon's pioneering spirit by continuing to tell the story and bringing our rich Jewish history and vibrant soul to the next generation.
During the past year we have set in motion five major projects.
· Revamped the weekly Yiddish/English newspaper, The Algemeiner Journal, and published 52 quality issues, with an increased readership of over 4000 new subscribers.
· Established a powerful website, www.algemeiner.com, and built its audience to an impressive average of 30,000 monthly visitors.
· Created a system to access the vast archives of the Algemeiner to preserve the legacies of institutions and individuals that have contributed to building and advancing Jewish life over the last 70 years.
· Launched the Annual Gershon Jacobson Lecture, to address vital issues facing Israel and the Jewish community. These important lectures will be published with the objective to stimulate discussion and offer solutions to our contemporary challenges.
· Publish and document – in all available mediums (books, films, electronic) – invaluable information, that will transmit the richness of our Jewish past as a guide for the future.
We invite you to partner with us in this vital work, making a true impact on society today. The GJC Foundation offers various dedication opportunities to participate in this historical venture. All dedications will be prominently and permanently recognized in our newspaper, website and other productions. Please contact us if you are interested in further discussing these opportunities.
