Israeli Society of Pruzany and
the Surrounding Area
Memorial Service 2006
On April 25th, Yom
HaShoah (Holocaust Remembrance Day), the Israeli
Society of Pruzany and the
Surrounding Area (PSA) held an annual memorial service. The service was held at the ZOA House in Tel Aviv. This year the
gathering was marked by a change. Since many of the first generation PSA people are no longer with us, second
generation PSA people have stepped forward to serve on the steering committee (Vaad).
Serving on the present committee are:
1) Avraham Har-Shalom (nee Fridberg) (1st Generation)
2) Gadi Ravnitzki (2nd Generation)
3) Ditz Auerbach (2nd Generation)
4) Klila Ben-Eliyahu (2nd Generation)
5) Modi Snir (2nd Generation)
6) David Kirat (2nd Generation)
On the Podium sat, from left to right:

between 60 - 70 1st, 2nd, and 3rd generation PSA people attended the
addition to the memorial monument this
year a memorial wall will be built on which "landsmen" can commemorate
the memory of their beloved ones on plaques. These plaques will be of
black marble with an engraving in any language you choose.
Until now the Municipality of Pruzany and Mr. Nickolay Burnos, who was born in Pruzany, have pre financed the project.
The total expenses so far amount to approximately US$16,000. There will be additional costs for the wall and the memorial plaques. Funds must be raised to cover the whole project in order to repay the money to those who pre financed it.
