<Dear Friends,

Year 2010 became a very productive but complicated one for association and   religious  community  “Shamir”.  As  an  independent, non-profit organization,   we  rely  on  the  generous  support of our friends to perpetuate  the memory and heritage of previous generations of Latvian  Jews  and  the  Holocaust in Latvia. Now more than ever, we need your  immediate  help, so that we can continue. We have accomplished much -  but   there is so much more still to do, and we thank you for helping  us   continue  our  important  mission  of preserving our history for  future  generations.

In 2010 we have accomplished the following events:

1.       Riga  Ghetto  and  Latvian  Holocaust  museum  was  opened on September  2010
2.       Second International Festival of Jewish culture gathered more than    4  000  visitors  for  10  events  in  Latvia  and  Lithuania, international  celebrities of Jewish music were staring.
3.      March “Steps for Life”, July 04, in memory of 90 000 in Latvia  murdered  Jews gathered about 700 participants from Latvia and abroad in   the  streets  of  former  Riga  ghetto  till  the Gogol synagogue memorial,  where candles ner neshama were lighted.
4.       Street  was named after Chief Rabbi of Riga and Latvia Nathan Barkan,  the first one in Eastern Europe named after an orthodox Rabbi.
5.      “Each  child  has  a  name”.  On September 02 names of 16 000 Jewish   children  killed  in  Latvia in the Holocaust were recited in Vermanes  park.
6.      Jewish  Encyclopedia  of  Latvia.  Literary  editing of 6 000 entries  was completed.

The program for 2011 is to be published in nearest future.

Donations  may  be  wired  to our bank account, by paypal or by check. Association “Shamir” has charity organization certificate.

With respect,
Rabbi Menachem Barkahan>
