Preserving Lviv Jewish Cemeteries #ukraine


Tony Hausner
 

Several members of the Lviv Jewish Community have been battling with the Lviv City Government over the preservation of the Jewish cemeteries.  There are two cemeteries in the city.  This battle has been going on in the courts for many years and the leader of this effort has been Rabbi Meylakh Sheykhet and the UCSJ (Union of Councils for Jews in the Former Soviet

Union).  Here is a link to a letter from UCSJ to Secretary Pompeo about this issue (See https://tinyurl.com/pompeoletterlvivcemeteries
 
Recently, Rabbi Sheykhet has learned that lawyers in the Ukranian Parliament are willing to submit legislation to protect the cemeteries.  He is asking for contributions of $5000 to pay these lawyers for their services.  Please let me know if you are willing to make contributions for this cause and the amount.
