NY Foundation Thanks Govt for Jewish Cemetery Restoration Funding

MTI-Hungary Today 2018.12.21.

The New York-based Heritage Foundation for Preservation of Jewish Cemeteries (HFPJC) has thanked the Hungarian government for providing funding for the restoration of pre-WWII Jewish cemeteries, in a letter, the head of the prime minister’s press office Bertalan Havasi told MTI on Friday.

HFPJC/Avoyseinu has been the leading organisation in cemetery restoration for almost two decades, assistant director Rifky Gelbman said, adding that it was their pleasure to share a short overview of the successful implementation of the first cemetery projects with the Hungarian government.

The foundation implements all of its restoration projects in conformity with Jewish law, Gelbman said.

A list of cemeteries is available here.
