Wikimedia Ukraine has received a request from an Interdisciplinary Certificate Program in Jewish Studies at National University of Kyiv-Mohyla Academy to organise a thematic month on writing articles about Israel (culture, science, history etc) during April-May, celebrating the 70th anniversary of the establishment of Israel as a state: Israel is 70. The University plans to give the active contributors some souvenirs for creating or improving content on Israel in Ukrainian Wikipedia. Wikimedia Israel will also support the most active contributors with souvenirs. So far 110 articles were created, 17 contributors took part[2], 4 articles were improved[3]. The project will continue till May 14, 2018.
