ESJF renovation work at the Beit Tahara in Chernivtsi Jewish Cemetery

ESJF completes renovation work at the historic Beit Tahara in Chernivtsi (Chernowitz) Jewish Cemetery.

ESJF is proud to announce the completion of the first stage of renovation of the Chernivtsi (Chernowitz) Beit Tahara (pre-burial ceremonial house), in the Jewish cemetery, which was constructed in 1905.

The renovation consisted of external works including renovating the dome, the windows, external walls and changing thecovering to copper.

This part of the renovation was made possible with the financial support of the Auswärtiges Amt and accomplished in cooperation with the Association of Jewish Communities and Organizations (Vaad of Ukraine), who will now complete renovation works on the internal parts of the site and create the Museum of the Holocaust in Bucovina.
