“The Survivor Mitzvah Project is a wonderful initiative that provides badly-needed funds to survivors in Eastern Europe in acute need of help…The money helps destitute survivors obtain medicines and other aids that help make their final years much more bearable. Kudos to Zane Buzby and Prof. Dovid Katz, who deserve tremendous credit for stepping in and filling a need that was not being fulfilled effectively by any Jewish organization.”
