News and Events

As a result of the documentation work that was performed in 2015 by the delegation in the cemetery in Kuty, the tombstone of Rabbi Yosef Epstein, the rabbi of Kuty (Kutov) in the years 1810-1828, was uncovered, together with that of his wife, Gittel the daughter of R. Nahman Zvi Ha-Levi.

The organization’s seventh annual delegation moved beyond the borders of Galicia. This time, our goal was to document one of the largest Jewish cemeteries in Bukovina – a cemetery located in the village of Chernohuozyi next to Vizhnitz.
