On this Erev Pesach morning of 5773 , YWN would like to thank our devoted readers across the globe for visiting YWN each day, patronizing our advertisers, and making our statistics continue to grow in greater strides than ever expected.
A debt of gratitude must be given to the dozens of people across the globe who constantly send us breaking news tips, photos, videos, and other valuable information which we then share with our readership.
Thanks to our entire staff of reporters, office personnel, our photo & video staff – including, the YWN Israel Team – working in our Jerusalem Headquarters, Yehuda Boltshauser (Kuvien Images), Hillel Engel, JDN, PhotoDynamics, and the rest of the team – for capturing as many photos & videos as possible of anything of interest for the YWN readership. Thanks to them, our photo gallery has close to 700,000 photos!
Special thanks to the entire staff at www.duvys.com– most notably Duvy Perkowski.
On that note, YWN Editor would like to thank everyone once again for reading Yeshiva World News, and helping make YWN a household-name, and the site where people turn to for accurate news stories first.
Whether you will be traveling, at home, with family or with friends – we would like to personally wish you all a wonderful Yom Tov!
