Our Leadership

LitvakSIG is staffed entirely by volunteers. A nine member Board of Directors manages the organization. There are numerous Research Group and Project Coordinators responsible for fundraising and management of our District and Guberniya groups, Internal Passports project and other special projects. We have a Membership Chair, a Webmaster who is responsible for our website, a Moderator responsible for moderating our Discussion List, and an Editor of our Online Journal. We are fortunate to have dozens of people with expertise in Litvak history and research who contribute content to our website.

LitvakSIG is growing and always interested in encouraging people to volunteer. If you are interested in volunteering with LitvakSIG, you will find a list of our current needs and a short form on the Volunteer Opportunities Page of our website. If you are interested in contributing content to our Online Journal, please contact our Online Journal Editor (contact information below).
