Honor Wall

In honor or memory of your loved one, or friends, or your Yiddish heritage.

Harvey and Carmen Gotliffe: To all our dear family members and friends who inspired us to relearn about our Yiddish heritage and language, we say a dank. We are especially grateful to our seventeen relatives in Europe whom we recently visited, who inspired us once again to remember where we came from.

Lea Delson:
My donation is in memory of Allen Stross. He was an intrepid and spirited person with tons of personality, a warm and kind person, and a fascinating storyteller. He was a dedicated photographer for the Jewish Music Festival, the Berkeley Historical Society, and the Yiddish Culture Festival. In 2005 he organized a photography contest sponsored by the Berkeley Historical Society, for photo essays about Berkeley's history. I was thrilled to be one of the winners of this contest. Thanks, Allen, for all you did.

Pinny [Paul] Switzer: I wish to honor my teachers at the Peretz School in Winnipeg, Canada, 1945-1952. We had classes in Yiddish all morning Monday through Friday on an array of subjects, starting with learning to read and write, and progressing through history, literature, tanakh, and Hebrew language. These teachers included Lapin, Zolf, Cantor, Halper, Greenberg, Tseitlin, Taft, and Fiterman.
