Nachum welcomed Abe Biderman to this morning’s JM in the AM to focus on Shuvu and an important fundraising effort, a doubling campaign, taking place in honor of the 12th Yahrtzeit of Rav Avraham Yaakov Hakohen Pam zt”l. “In 1991, with the deterioration of communism in the Former Soviet Union, hundreds of thousands of Jews streamed through the Iron Curtain. Ignorant of their Jewish heritage, Russian Jews would require extensive support to integrate into Israeli society. The late great visionary, Rabbi Avraham Pam zt”l, had the foresight to realize that, after over seventy years of virtually no Jewish life, Russian Jews would require tremendous support to acclimate in their new Jewish homeland. His dream was to create a framework of schools throughout Israel for Russian immigrant children, to return them to the heritage that had been denied to their parents and grandparents. At the same time, Shuvu schools would provide them with the outstanding secular education they were accustomed to in Russia.” In honor of Rav Pam’s Yahrtzeit, one of Shuvu’s generous donors has pledged to match , dollar for dollar all donation’s submitter and/or postmarked in the month of Av (today & tomorrow) with a limit of one million dollars. Get your pledges in today!
