    Gesher Galicia is pleased to announce a partnership agreement with
    Gratz College. Located in Melrose Park, Pennsylvania, Gratz is the
    oldest independent and pluralistic college for Jewish studies in North
    America (https://www.gratz.edu/).

    Under the agreement, Gesher Galicia will provide access to its
    archival expertise and its database of Jewish records, while Gratz
    College will make its collections available, along with the expertise
    of its faculty. The two organizations may partner in public education
    programs and other projects relating to Galician history, genealogy,
    literature and more. In addition, Gratz will extend a 25% reduction in enrollment fees for online classes to active members of Gesher

    Commenting on the new agreement, Andrew Zalewski, vice president of
    Gesher Galicia, said: "Closer ties with Gratz College reflect our
    commitment to public education and partnerships with educational and
    cultural institutions worldwide. The exchange of expertise and
    archival information will undoubtedly enhance what we can offer to
    students and genealogists interested in Jewish Galicia."

    Gratz expressed similar enthusiasm for this new partnership. Monika
    Rice, director of the Gratz College Holocaust and Genocide Studies
    Program, said that it will enable "students to use primary documents
    from the Old Country for their research on rich and multiethnic Central-European heritage." Paul Finkelman, president of Gratz
    College, also weighed in on the new relationship between Gesher
    Galicia and Gratz, describing it as "a perfect partnership." He added,
    "For more than a century, Gratz has been committed to Jewish history.
    In the last half-century, we have also been committed to Holocaust
    studies. This partnership helps Gratz fulfill both missions. As the
    grandson of two immigrants from Galicia, I am particularly proud of
    this collaboration."
