I have decided to ask people to meet directly at the restaurant rather than at the concierge desk.

This change will help those who have sessions ending at 6 pm at the Hilton go directly to meet us for dinner at the restaurant Taza, 1400 West 6th Street, Cleveland, 216-274-1170. It is a Lebanese Grill which has a large menu of appetizers, salads, soups, rolled pitas, entrees from their shish grill and other entrees.

Myrna Teck will be in attendance. She was recently present for the premiere of Tomek Wisniewski ’s 48-minute film, titled “Absent Neighbors” on June 14th, designated as the “start” event to restore the Jewish cemetery in Goniadz. During her time in Poland last month, Myrna met with Piotr Puchta, CEO of FODZ


Dan Oren also plans to be in attendance. He is president of The Friends of Jewish Heritage in Poland, founded and registered in the United States of America as an independent, non-profit organization in 2016. The primary mission of The Friends of Jewish Heritage in Poland is to protect and commemorate the surviving sites and monuments of Jewish cultural heritage in Poland. A major beneficiary of our work is the Poland-based "Foundation for the Preservation of Jewish Heritage in Poland", also known as FODŻ.

Projects of The Friends of Jewish Heritage in Poland include cemetery and synagogue maintenance and restoration. Through FODŻ, The Friends of Jewish Heritage in Poland is supporting renovation of the Old Lublin Jewish cemetery's historical wall, the synagogues at Przysucha and Radzanów, the Jewish cemetery of Trzcianne and installation of a memorial at the Janów Sokólski Jewish cemetery, among other projects.


Yefim Kogan, Manager of Bessarabia Cemetery projects, JewishGen Bessarabia SIG Leader and Coordinator will attend.


Tony Hausner, active as a leader in Skala genealogy initiatives, a town from the former Galicia region, will also be in attendance.


Warmest Regards,

Jeff Miller
