Dear Anna:

Your response was welcome news to the group. I apologize if some of
our members misunderstood Mr. Zissels' intentions. Discussion is
continuing, and there are one or two individuals who will be visiting
Chernivtsi in the near future. It is still being sorted out who will
represent our group, and we hope that a personal visit will
facilitate communication and help prevent misunderstandings.
Together, I hope we can help you create a successful museum that will
be of value to Chernivtsi residents, visitors for the 600th
Anniversary celebration, and on into the future.

I will be traveling for the next week out of the country. Other
members of our list will be in touch. I am copying this to our
webmaster and co-list owner, Jerome Schatten, and to Miriam Taylor as
well, who has been a very active and helpful member of our group.

Warmest wishes, and Happy Passover,

Bruce Reisch
Czernowitz-L list owner
