Appeal by the Consistoire Haut-Rhin to the descendants of the Jewish communities

(Participation in the maintenance of the Jewish cemeteries)

On the occasion of the tribute to the Jewish community , 8th November 2009, we pass on an appeal from the Jewish Consistory of Upper Rhine, for the maintenance of cemeteries, including Durmenach Jewish cemetery.

Please note that in Alsace, the maintenance of Jewish cemeteries is the responsibility of the local communities, the vast majority are now extinct. The Consistory must only rely on the families of descendants to help with this burden.

The Durmenach cemetery is regularly maintained by a private company.

Donations may be sent directly to the Consistoire:
