Online Adult Jewish learning

JIS is a project initiated by Zichron Avos, (Memorial to our Forefathers), a foundation created by Mr. Bert Zauderer, in memory of members of his family, who were martyred during the Holocaust.

Zichron Avos was founded following a chance occurrence to Mr. Zauderer during a recent trip to Israel. While driving with his family on a country road, Mr. Zauderer happened upon a sign indicating a forest dedicated to the memory of French Jews martyred in the Holocaust.

A memorial wall in the forest is inscribed with the names of over 80,000 Jews deported from France to Auschwitz. Remembering that several members of their family were deported from French Internment camps, they searched the list and eventually located their names.

Inspired to offer a living memorial to his family's lost loved ones, both in France and Poland, Mr. Zauderer founded Zichron Avos to support the use of the Internet for Jewish studies.
