Czestochowa Jews And Their Descendants Meet On Sukkot (Continued from last week)

JewishPress Logo

An exhibit commemorating the Jewish community of Czestochowa, which has been traveling the world for the past two years, culminated in the gathering of more than 200 people who went there for a special reunion during Sukkot. These remnants and descendants of a community of more than 30,000 came from the U.S., Israel, South America, Australia and Europe.





The first sukkah built in Czestochowa in 65 years was filled to capacity

by reunion members and many official guests.





Sigmund Rolat, grandson in hand, leads the march from the place of selection to the Umschlatz Platz, from where 30,000 Jews were sent to their deaths in Treblinka.





Rabbi Michael Schudrich, chief rabbi of Poland, leads prayers in the

cemetery in memory of those killed by the Germans.




Anyone who would like a complete set of pictures from the Czestochowa trip may contact Shmuel Ben Eliezer at Bshir3@aol.com
