Thank you to Phyllis Nierel Simon for sharing an interesting article in the Winter 2020 issue of B'nai B'rith Magazine (

The article, "Unfinished Business: Restoring Eastern Europe’s Desecrated Jewish Cemeteries," describes a number of organizations that are working to restore cemeteries:
- ESJF (European Jewish Cemetery Initiative)
- FODZ (Foundation for Preservation of Jewish Heritage in Poland)
- Matzevah Foundation
- Avoyseinu (Heritage Foundation for Preservation of Jewish Cemeteries)
as well as several groups focused on individual towns.

Towns that are mentioned: 

Goniadz, Milejczyce, and Przerosl, Poland
Huklyvyi and Rohaytn, Ukraine 
It was nice to see the names of some genealogy friends as well!
