A great man is one who collects knowledge the way a bee collects honey and uses it to help people overcome the difficulties they endure - hunger, ignorance and disease!

Remember, remember always, that all of us, and you and I especially, are descended from immigrants and revolutionists.

While their territory has been devastated and their homes despoiled, the spirit of the Serbian people has not been broken.

Тhe Njegoš Fund for Serbian Studies at Columbia University

The Njegoš Fund for Serbian Studies at Columbia University was established in 1997 to promote language instruction and cultural studies at the University. The Serbian language program at Columbia, one of the oldest in North America, dates back to before World War I, when Mihajlo “Michael” Pupin was a famous professor at Columbia. We at the University have tried to uphold this tradition by improving and expanding the program of instruction in Serbian studies and events for the community.

Instruction: During the last calendar year, 63 students enrolled in a score of International Affairs, Language and Comparative Literature, and Political Science courses that were offered in the South Slavic area. The figure includes language classes, taught now by Dr. Aleksandar Bošković, who was hired to replace Dr. Radmila Gorup; he also taught a course on Serbian culture. Using Njegoš funds, Dr. Gorup was brought back this fall to teach her signature course, “Within and Beyond Empires: Literatures of South Slavs.”

Lifeline Humanitarian Organization

YOUR HELP WILL MAKE ALL THE DIFFERENCE

Dear Friends of Lifeline,

Serbia continues to face humanitarian crises and your help is urgently needed. Serbia's aged medical infrastructure and poorly equipped healthcare system is unable to meet the demands of the nation, where cancer mortality rates are the highest in Europe - including the highest mortality rate from breast cancer - and are rising at 2.5 per year.

In addition to these shocking realities, Serbia is on the front lines of the regional migrant crisis as hundreds of thousands of migrants seek safety, passing through Serbian borders, needing shelter and emergency aid.

Your contribution will enable Lifeline to help address these urgent needs. In 2015 Lifeline, together with The HRH Crown Princess Katherine Foundation in Belgrade, accomplished many important goals, including: providing lifesaving equipment to the Clinical Centers of Gynecology and Obstetrics where several thousand examinations are conducted per month; supporting hospitals by providing the expertise and equipment to conduct breast cancer screening, testing made possible thanks to a grant from the Niarchos Foundation; and supporting educational efforts by sending doctors to Memorial Sloan Kettering and the MD Anderson Cancer Center for additional training. Lifeline also supports the annual Serbian Medical Diaspora Conference in Belgrade, attended by more than 400 doctors from throughout Serbia.

Serbian Orthodox Teachers, Youth and Young Adult Association

SERBIAN ORTHODOX CHURCH IN NORTH AND SOUTH AMERICA
Serbian Orthodox Teachers, Youth and Young Adult Association
S. O. T. A. Y. A. for the 21st Century

With the Blessings of the Episcopal Council of the Serbian Orthodox Church in North and South America and the support of the Central Church Council, we announce the reestablishment of the Serbian Orthodox Teachers and Youth Association. The purpose of this ministry is to unite the teachers, young adults, and youth members of the Serbian Orthodox Church in the Dioceses throughout North and South America. It is a special forum through which people will be brought closer together through a ministry of faith and fellowship.

MISSION AND GOAL OF SOTAYA MINISTRY

The world is constantly changing and every day seems to introduce a new trend and movement of youth culture. Most everyone agrees that growing up in today’s society heavily influenced by media and pop culture, is a much more difficult task than it was in previous times. They are also unprecedented technological developments and fundamental economic change. As a result, we live in a world which is more interconnected, more volatile, and more complex. In the process, our youth are being shaped by many negative and destructive influences, ones that can and will define who they are and who they will become. For this reason, we have the sacred responsibility to do all that we can to ensure that the positive teachings and traditions of the Orthodox Church become a living presence in their lives. The local church, its worship experience, education and fellowship opportunities are vital to the spiritual well being of all of us, most especially our younger generations.

Христос – Нова Пасха – Божанствена Литургија

Serbian Edition, author Bishop Athanasius Yevtich (издање на српском језику, аутор епископ Атанасије Јевтић)

Период двадесетог века представљао је врло комплексно раздобље везано за развој литургијско-богословске мисли у нашој помесној Цркви. Осећајући насушну еклисијалну и пастирску потребу да поменуту мисао надгради и истовремено је учини приступачнијом народу Божијем, епископ Атанасије Јевтић се одлучио да понуди тротомно дело под насловом: Христос – Нова Пасха – Божанствена Литургија. Иако се објављивање трећег тома тек очекује, сматрамо да богословској и читалачкој пажњи треба представити два тома који су већ изашли.

Сложени назив овог епохалног издања, које може бити препознато као „српска литургијска стромата двадесет и првог века“, аутор је начинио на основу одељка из Прве Посланице Коринћанима светог апостола Павла: Јер се Пасха наша Христос жртвова за нас (1Кор 5, 7). Дело се састоји из два тома и намењено је, према речима епископа Атанасија, „богобојажљивим и христочежњивим љубитељима Божанских Тајни, усрдним учесницима Свете Литургије и причесницима Богочовечанских Светиња“. Наиме, у њему су сабрани текстови о Светој и Божанственој Евхаристији од најранијих времена Цркве Христове (првог века) све до савременог доба, а сâм циљ јесте „раскривање литургијских, еклисиолошких, космичких и есхатолошких димензија Светајне Христа и Његове Цркве“. Највећи део сабраних литургијско-светоотачких текстова се по први пут појављује на српском језику, благодарећи преводилачком и прегалачком труду епископа Атанасија. Уз то, веома су драгоцени његови оригинални коментари. Треба истаћи да су оба тома штампана са тврдим корицама у штампарији Интерклима Графика у Врњачкој Бањи.
