How can I support the project?
Perhaps you have been on a tour of the cemetery, and now you recognise the catastrophic state of the grounds and monuments? Almost all the relatives of those interred in the cemetery either perished in the Holocaust or have long since emigrated abroad, and there is no-one left to take care of the graves. The Jewish Community has a limited budget, and so is only able to make a modest contribution to the preservation effort.
We are asking you to help us! You may choose one of the following options:
Taking part in volunteer days:
Volunteer days give you the opportunity to experience this unique cultural and historical site from a completely new perspective. You will be able to use a variety of gardening tools to clear the vegetation currently overgrowing the gravestones and site. Gloves, shears, rakes and wheelbarrows are provided.
Upcoming volunteer days:
The current dates can be found here.
(From March to October, volunteer days will be held on the same days as the guided tours; the season ends on 1 November, and work resumes in March).
If you happen to have any gardening gloves or other equipment of your own, please bring these along.
• All visitors enter the site at their own risk, and you will be asked to confirm this on arrival (declaration of liability).
• Men are requested to wear a head covering while on the premises.
• Please wear sturdy footwear and suitable working clothes (the undergrowth contains extremely thorny blackberry thickets).
• We may stop work in the event of strong wind or severe weather conditions, depending on the situation and safety considerations.
