The Yisroel Shtern Project aims to present all of his work in Yiddish on the net, together with representative English translations. The project has been supported by the voluntary work of gifted translators on two continents, and by the Australian Centre for the Study of Jewish Civilization, which has a special interest in Polish Jewry between the world wars.
