Welcome to the Heritage Foundation for Preservation of Jewish cemeteries (HFPJC)/Avoyseinu
It is our honor to represent the hundreds of individuals and families who comprise the Committee of Descendants in each individual cemetery project. Their firm commitment to preserving their forsaken ancestral burial sites against all odds, financial and otherwise, is truly inspiring and encourages us to continue this holy work of rescuing, restoring, and preserving the abandoned Jewish cemeteries throughout Hungary, Romania, Slovakia, Serbia, Western Ukraine, and some parts of Poland.
“May the enormous merit of this sacred cause continue to bless our efforts.”
› Working closely with the descendants of each cemetery in a concerted effort to restore their ancestral resting place.
› Securing the cemetery by enclosing the entire site with durable fencing.
› Restoring the interior of the cemetery by cleaning the grounds and repairing/re-erecting the gravestones, thus restoring the honor to the deceased and simultaneously preserving the genealogical information contained in the cemetery.
› Ensuring the safety and upkeep of the restored cemeteries through long-term maintenance.
› Creating detailed burial catalogs of each restored cemetery.
