    12 years old. It is one of the books that helped form my opinions about life. One of the things that startled me was when Anne says, I'm paraphrasing here, something like, she still thinks that people are basically good. Then I cried!

    Now me, I'm different. Anne, was a much better person than I. For many reasons; one being, because I do not share her beautiful attitude.

    Anne. Her Family, and The Jewish People of her time were such innocent, sweet and  kind people! People nowadays do not understand them and the mind set they had.

    I had cousins here in America, of that generation so I know how wonderful these people were.

    One could almost say that APSJ works with clients one shovel or one fresh chicken, or one pair of eyeglasses at a time. Founded in 1975 Our Adopt a Bubbe (or Zayde) program reaches out to elderly Jews and the handicapped in Ukraine and Belarus.

    APSJ now aids some of the most vulnerable and impoverished citizens whole Jewish communities, the elderly, the handicapped, et al. Medicine for a pressing illness, a hearing aid, new socks, etc, coal
    for the winter, repair of a broken refrigerator, new boots or a shovel for gardening When a gift of sugar enabled some villagers outside the city of Dnipropetrovsk to make preserves, they donated a portion for distribution to indigent pensioners in the city.They understood only too well the meaning of simple gifts.
