ROMAN AND RIVKE WAJSFELD
Just as Yiddish was the language of the Jewish people the Yiddisher Arbeter Bund, better known as The Bund, was one of their main political parties.
Founded in October 1897 as the response of the Jewish people to the Tsarist oppression, the Bund soon become such a champion not only of the Yiddish workers but of all workers that Lenin felt the need to dedicate a special booklet entitled "About the Bund" to try to undermine it's work and reach.
The Bund's influence was the main vehicle to promote the development of the Yiddish Secular Educational System one of the few, if not the only, educational system in the world encompassing every level, from day care to University and Teacher College built from scratch without ever receiving any support from any established government.
Yiddish Education, Yiddish Language, Yiddish Art and Human values where the fields supported by the Bund and it's followers to such a degree that it would be impossible to understand Yiddish Culture without learning about the Bund.
For being the Bund, the main engine behind the Yiddish cultural movement (which has contributed more Nobel Prizes to Literature than most other languages), and Roman and Rivke Wajsefeld loyal followers of the movement and for their contribution to construct a solid Jewish
educational system in Mexico as well as social and cultural institutions, here is our recognition.
