Tayere Mendelyaners,

The Yidlid -Yiddish songs- website is one year old.

Each song in the site (almost thirty, and growing) is complete with
Yiddish and translitterated text, French and English translations,
vocabulary, score, audio file, links to recordings, etc.It has already
been visited by thousands of persons from more than forty different
countries and we're really grateful for all the messages of thanks and
encouragement we received.

Presently, Yidlid needs some financial support.

Our seven years old old-faithful computer is slower every day and
won't survive much longer. We already extended its life by shifting to
Linux when Windows wouldn't work any longer... and are very happy with
the change! But it can't adapt to recent softwares anymore. We would
like to buy or find a newer one.

We would like also to spend more time keeping the website growing, and
this means finding at least a small income through working on it.
If you like the website, and want to contribute, please contact us at
helenebkatz [at] gmail [dot] com and we will give you all the
information necessary.

Even small contributions are welcome!

The website's adress:

A dank in foroys.
For Yidlid,
Helene B. Katz
