Memory and Respect

Memory and Respect

The purpose of the project is to create a website with a database of the Jews buried in the two remaining Jewish cemeteries in Voronezh, Russia, and to help people find their ancestors.

It is planned that through the website, Jewish families from all over the world will be able to uncover their ancestry, restore family history and help maintain graves by transferring donations to the Voronezh Jewish community.

This undertaking is equally important for the young generation of the local Jewish community to preserve their heritage, history and traditions.

This project is supported by Genesis Philanthropy Group as part of the Small Grants Program.
