Anorexics and Bulimics Anonymous (ABA)

Textbook Translation


Where do donations go?


ABA members in Israel have finished their work on translating the ABA text into Hebrew. Now the GSA has hired a professional translator to edit their work one section at a time as we receive the funds to cover it.  Currently, the Preface, Chapters 1-2, and the Preamble for Meetings have been completed!  We can only continue this work as donations come in so please consider making a contribution.

This will be the first translation of the ABA textbook into another language.

Testimonials from some members on why the book needs to be translated:

  • "My name is S____ and I am a member of ABA Israel. The main reason I wish this book will be translated is that I hope to get deeper into our literature, and this cannot happen since my English is not good enough.
  • When I read a message of ABA in Hebrew it moves me in ways that don`t exist in English.
  • I simply realise what is my problem and the solution for it.  The ability to identify and the healing power of words."

A dedicated committee of Russian and English-speaking ABA members have completed over 80% of this translation in the past year and a half.  The GSA is requesting your financial help to start building a fund for finalizing this translation. Once donations have started to accumulate we plan to have the Preamble for Meetings published first.
