Volunteer action and research to save the Jewish cemetery of Tállya

Update posted by Bence Illyes On Mar 10, 2021

After two successful cemetery-saving actions that we carried out with the contribution of nearly 40 volunteers in the Jewish cemetery of Tállya, now we would like to continue the work we have started to save the cemetery and we are also looking towards new goals!

  • Maintaining the memory of a former Jewish community of Tállya (טאליא)
    Full documentation of the cemetery, do a research on every tombstone, make available database and website on the Jewish community of Tállya
    Placing commemorative plaques at the cemetery and in the village, for the remembrance of the jews from Tállya
  • Inclusive volunteer program
    Organizing a two day volunteer cemetery clean-up with the participation of jews and non-jews together in order to clean the remained parts of the cemetery.

Please check the new campaign for further details and new pictures, and also spread if you can!

Huge update on the project:

Due to your very generous donations, we decided to continue the project in another abandoned jewish cemetery in the area, at Erdőbénye. If we reach our new target, which is 800.000 forint (2600$) we will be able to save with our volunteer team both cemeteries that are close to destruction. I updated the fundraizer, now you can see pictures that been taken at the end of August in the cemetery at Erdőbénye.

Dear All,

We received so much support from you (a bit unexpectedly) and we feel so much blessed now!

Since the project requires more money than the requested amount, and we also would like to continue with the project once it's started at Tállya, we decided to raise the target up to 600.000 forints = 2000 $. With that we can include more volunteers (now we have 20) and search for another abandoned cemetery and do a renovation project with volunteers there as well.

Thank you so much for all the donations and generous support, it means a lot to us and it's a great help in order to save some parts of the jewish heritage of Hungary!
