Dear Jerome and members of the list,

I am sorry that my message caused such annoyance.

Even though this list has more than 250 members, it is rare that
more than 5 - 10 of us write to the list about anyone subject.
That is why I used the word "many".

I had no intention to imply that we as a group object to this picture,
or that we as a group write to the creator of the website.
I only meant that those who do not like it could write to it's creator
and ask him/her to change it to a more appropriate one.

I also mistakenly thought that this website was the website of
the Jewish Museum in Chernivtsi. I have now been informed by others
as well, that this is not so.
