Surveys underway in Serbia in preparation for 2018 projects

ESJF rabbinical and engineering surveyors are visiting 14 cemetery sites in Northern Serbia this week in preparation for the proposed fencing projects in 2018.

To date, the ESJF has fenced 10 cemeteries in Serbia in cooperation with our local partners, the Federation of Jewish Communities in Serbia.

We are very grateful for all the assistance of the local Jewish communities in Belgrade and Novi Sad, with special thanks to Jasa Preger, Ladislav Trajer, and Chief Rabbi Yizhak Asiel.

Surveys are taking place this week at the following sites: Bac, Bogojevo, Sivac, Kulpin, Perlez, Novi Becej, Novo Milosevo, Ostojicevo, Coka, Srpski Krstu, Djala, Horgos, Martonos, and Mali Idjos.

Rabbinical supervision is being provided by Rabbi Moshe Herschaft of the Committee for the Preservation of Jewish Cemeteries in Europe.
