1. Send time-sensitive notices well in advance.
2. Send material as plain text:  no HTML, other coding, or attachments.
3. Write MENDELE PERSONALS in the subject line.
4. To respond, contact the person who or organization which has posted the 
notice, *not* with your ever-beleaguered untershames.

The first Yiddish language film ever to be shot in Canada, and the second 
in North America in over 70 years, is set to shoot mid October and we need 
your help.

It has been a real challenge to fund because of the decision to shoot the 
film in Yiddish (with English subtitles). Despite a lot of pressure to 
make it in English, we are sticking to our guns but need your help. We 
have launched a fundraising page on a crowd funding website called

indiegogo - the link is here:


This film is an important film. A large number of small donations can make 
a big difference.  So please pass this on to everybody you know - if 3000 
people to give  $10.00 we will have reached our goal!

You can visit the website thepinmovie.com for more details about the film 
and check out the article just published in the CJN (Canadian Jewish News)
