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.
