I would like to express my deep appreciation for
your generous donation that you sent without even
being requested to, for the sake of reviving the Iraqi
Jewish music. To me it was a vote of confidence when
I first embarked on my project that took me to London
and NY in February 2003. Your remarkable deed has
paved the way for others to positively respond to
my request for donations.
As I have finally managed to establish "KANOON",
Association for preserving the Iraqi Jewish music,
your donation maintains a place of honour for being
the first big check received. Once I am done with
opening a bank account and providing the necessary
documents, I will send you a receipt of 1000 sterling.
You have been an outstanding leader in the Iraqi community
in Britain, promoted the Iraqi Jewish heritage not
in Britain only but world wide also. You have earned
a respectable status not only for your generosity
but also for your persistence in seeking the Iraqi
Jewish roots and highlighting them for the young generations.
Finally I would like to mention that throughout the
past years, Iraqi Jews everywhere including myself
have been lucky to enjoy the "THE SCRIBE"
for keeping them informed of what's going on in the
community world wide.
Time has come to extend my appreciation to your loving
sister Eileen who I really admire and thank for all
the support she provided.
Linda Menuhin (Daughter of Yaacob Abdel Aziz)
Executive Director "KANOON"
