Rohatyn, Ukraine Cemetery Project 2018
We are recently back from a wonderful week spent in Rohatyn, Urkaine with our partners at Rohatyn Jewish Heritage. Jay and Marla Osborn invited The Matzevah Foundation to Ukraine last year with the goal to help them understand all of the particulars of carrying out a Jewish cemetery restoration project. TMF president Steven Reece along with board members Rachel McRae and Przemek Panisuik and volunteer staff member Bruce Mussey joined in on the project. We were also lucky to have Rachael Romero join us for a second project this summer.
Rohatyn Jewish Heritage has provided a thorough recap of the week of work in the Old Jewish cemetery. We invite you to check out this article and to learn more about their future plans in Rohatyn by visiting their website.
