Veterans Appreciation Project




Dear Friends,

May 9, 2011 will mark the 66th anniversary of the Allied Victory that brought the end of WWII in Europe. On Sunday, May 8, 2011, Ezra USA, a Jewish Youth organization based in Brooklyn, will honor local veterans for their efforts and bravery in fighting the Nazi regime. As part of Ezra’s Veterans Appreciation Project, our volunteers will visit veterans to personally thank each of them for their bravery and noble service in WWII. Each veteran will receive a gift package prepared by Ezra leaders and volunteers that will include a Certificate acknowledging their courage and selflessness.

It is a sad fact, but with each passing year there are fewer and fewer living WWII veterans among us, so it is extremely important that we honor them today and keep the memory of their experiences alive. The Veterans Appreciation Project presents a unique opportunity to accomplish both ends - it will honor veterans for their bravery, and, more importantly, it will allow Ezra’s young volunteers to come face-to-face with each veteran’s story and to keep their heroic legacy alive. Bringing together two separate generations will also serve to reinforce our intergenerational unity – a cause whose importance cannot be understated.

The Veterans Appreciation Project is just one of many community outreach and educational initiatives run by Ezra USA. A primarily Russian-speaking Jewish youth movement with chapters in a number of states, including New York, Massachusetts, Florida, Chicago and Pennsylvania, Ezra USA is dedicated to strengthening the Jewish identity of young Jews in America. The organization serves about 7,000 young Jews in their teens, 20s and 30s. Ezra USA‘s central mission is to ensure the continuation of the Jewish people through the teaching of Jewish values and leadership development in the Russian-speaking Jewish community. Thank you!

We hope you will support Ezra USA in this important endeavor. The organization is currently accepting donations, 100% of which will go toward the purchase of gifts for the veterans.
