Rare historic photographs of the demolished Old Jewish cemetery in Lviv: pictures gallery and documented tombstones

The JGB Organization is launching a new comprehensive project: research and documentation of Jewish cemeteries in Romanian Bukovina.

Tzvi Tal has just passed away in Jerusalem at the age of 94. One of Israel’s leading jurists in Israel and a Supreme Court justice, he presided over some of Israel’s most prominent legal cases in Israel in the 1980s and 1990s.

Unusual evidence from the 18th c. memoirs reveals a haunting and tragic story hidden behind the engraved epitaph of a tombstone, documented by JGB in Bolechiv

Our organization began formulating an outline for the production of an innovative and groundbreaking project: a wide ranging historical atlas characterizing the history of Galician and Bukovina Jewry from its inception until its destruction during the Holocaust, and beyond.
The purpose of the atlas is to present the centuries old history and cultural heritage of two important and influential communities of the Jewish people, Galicia and Bukovina. These communities will be presented, on one hand, against the background of Jewish history in general, and on the other, against general local history.

The Jewish Galicia and Bukovina Organization has launched a new initiative: to investigate the past and fate of Jewish communities in rural Eastern Galicia.
The starting point of the research will be the Maniawa community (in the Solotvyn district). Researchers will make an effort to locate all of the Jewish families who lived in the area, to trace the life stories of these families, the circumstances of their settlement in the village, their occupations, their education, their social, cultural, and economic activity, their relationship with other Jewish communities, directions and causes of their migration to other cities, et cetera.

A new volume of articles edited by Francisca Solomon and Ion Lihaciu ('Alexandru Ioan Cuza' University of Jassy) with the support of JGB Organization.
