In the village of Chornohuzy next to Vizhnitsa there is one of the largest Jewish cemeteries in Bukovina – a cemetery where the Jewish residents of Vizhnitsa (Wiznitz) used to bury their dead from the 1860-s….

At the Jewish cemetery in Buczacz, the gravestone of Esther Czaczkes (Farb) - the mother of Shay (Shmuel Yosef) Agnon was discovered. The exciting discovery was made as part of the research and documentation project of the JGB organization by the annual expedition staff that worked this summer (August 2018) in Buczacz.

Kuty, a town situated on the border between Galicia and Bukovina, was a relatively small town, numbering a general population of about 6,740 at its peak, around 1910. About half of this number were Jews. However, the community of Kuty earned a reputation far beyond its modest size due to famous personages who originated from there...

In the aim of widening the circle of students and non-academic audiences interested in Jewish history in Galicia and Bukovina, we are in the process of creating a series of online courses available for people all over the world.

The first online course titled "Jews of Galicia: A History" is given by Prof. Joshua Shanes (College of Charleston, USA)/ It was made in collaboration with The Research Project on Galician and Bukovinian Jewry at Haifa university.

The course surveys the establishment, flourishing and destruction of this once vital community by examining its social, economic, political, religious and cultural history from the eighteenth century – the time of the province's creation – to the Holocaust.

During the past summer, we returned to Galicia, to the Tarnopol region. The 8th annual delegation of the JGB Organization began the work of documenting the ancient Jewish cemetery in Buczacz, S.Y. Agnon’s home town. This cemetery holds a special place in those of Agnon’s works devoted to his home town. It symbolizes the continuity of generations in the city and is an important component in the special Jewish space in which the plots of his many stories take place.

At the 17th World Congress of Jewish Studies that took place in Jerusalem in August this year our organization’s activities were presented in two special sessions:

A session called “The Legacy of Galician Jewry: Research and Resources” was held by the Research Project on Galician and Bukovinian Jewry which was established by the JGB Organization in Haifa University.

New project recently completed by the JGB Organization presents to the public a unique archival material concerning the Stanisławów Jewry before the World War II.

Meorei Galicia: Encyclopaedia of Galician Sages by rabbi Meir Wunder is one of the most extensive and reliable sources of rabbinical genealogy written in the twentieth century. Its six volumes, published from 1987 contain extensively detailed genealogies of Galician rabbinical families, arranged alphabetically by surname according to the Hebrew alphabet.

The Research Project on Galician and Bukovinian Jewry (University of Haifa) with the support of the Jewish Galicia and Bukovina Organization launched a new program of scholarships and excellence prizes .

As a result of the documentation work that was performed in 2015 by the delegation in the cemetery in Kuty, the tombstone of Rabbi Yosef Epstein, the rabbi of Kuty (Kutov) in the years 1810-1828, was uncovered, together with that of his wife, Gittel the daughter of R. Nahman Zvi Ha-Levi.

Нашою цілю є створення он-лайн бази даних історичних документів та залишків матеріальної культури. З допомогою цього веб сайту ми сподіваємосб зробити ці матеріали доступними як для широкого кола так і для академічної спільноти, що постійно збільшується.

На цей час більша частина нашого сайту існує в англомовній версії, але в майбутньому ми плануємо створити також і повноцінний україномовний варіант.
