On October 31st, Executive Producer Maxine Schwartz announced a major financial breakthrough for the project:
a $100,000 gift!
The generous donation was made by a Miami woman raised in Germany. She survived the Holocaust and later converted to Judaism.
Dr. Mindy Hersh, Senior Executive Producer, says "the gift transforms the complexion of our fund raising efforts which began only this month."
The gift will memorialize the benefactor's late husband. Stay tuned for more details.
