Our donors

Our greatest thanks for our donors!

Everyone who has backed our idea and decided to contribute to creating a long story spinning one thousand years of the history of Polish Jews will be honored here. We would like to give our heartfelt thanks to you for supporting our research and documentation projects. Without your help, we would not be able to report on contemporary Jewish life, and no educational and community activities would be possible. Virtual Shtetl is not simply a site but a community of people who co-create it.

Taking into consideration the role that the Jewish nation played and continues to play in the building of a better world, the way in which it positively influences the development of humanity and its evolution in the right direction, there is no upper limit to the funds that could be given to this work, not expecting anything in return.
