More complete Shtetl info! 

The mission of the Shtetl Foundation is to document and celebrate the rich and vibrant Jewish History in Europe before its destruction during the Holocaust with the building of a full-size replica of a typical East-European Shtetl in Rishon Le-Zion, Israel. Construction is scheduled to begin in 2003; The Shtetl Foundation, a 501 c not-for-profit organisation, was founded by Prof. Yaffa Eliach in December of 1999. The Foundation's headquarters are located in New York City.
