I am happy to inform our membership that our website has now been successfully rebuilt and is up and running. Please refer to www.jgstoronto.ca for announcements, back issues of Shem Tov, resources, information about events, and much more.
Our Cemetery Committee is looking for someone who can read Russian to translate the inscriptions on tombstones. This would necessitate meeting once or twice per year to go over photos taken by the committee members before the photos are uploaded to JOWBR.
We are still searching for a Treasurer. If you have an accounting designation and/or bookkeeping experience and would like to be part of our Board, I would like to talk to you. Our Society is also looking for someone to take on the Secretary position. This is a very important role. The candidate should be well-organized, be familiar with taking minutes and be willing to book the venues for our programs.
Please email me at email@example.com if you are interested in becoming a part of your Society's leadership. Also, please contact me if you plan on attending the IAJGS Conference in Paris in July.
Hope you all have a wonderful and safe summer.
President, JGS Toronto
