The Yerushe Society

The Yerushe Society recognizes and honors those supporters who have let us know that they have included the Yiddish Book Center in their estate plans.

By including a gift to the Yiddish Book Center in your estate plans, you will help us safeguard our collections, make Yiddish literature accessible both in the original and in English translation, advance Jewish learning, and provide a legacy for future generations.

We would like to thank and acknowledge the following donors who have informed us of their intentions.
