I am in communication with Professor Wolf Moskovich and he has asked
me to inform the group of the following:

The Yiddish conference will be a professional academic one and will
extend over two days, not 10.

Funds have been raised and Professor Moskovich is presently working on
the program. The organizing committee is still deciding whether to
include a concert and entertainment events, but a tour of shtetlekh in
Bucovina and Galicia will certainly be included.

I will keep you posted on developments regarding the Yiddish
Conference as I learn about them.
