Cemeteries from Tîrgu-Mureș

Documentation of the Jewish Cemeteries from Tîrgu-Mureș

 

We provide an insight look into our centuries-old Jewish community - unfortunately, not in its life - but in its death. The members of our community have born, lived like everyone else. Their passing, however is peculiar. Some of them were accepted into the mound, but there are many, ashes of whom flew into the sky. So, literally. This is testified by the great number of commemorative plaques ...

Dear Friends!

We apply to you who live in Israel or anywhere else all over the world and your roots lead back to our town. Your relatives, friends, acquaintances sleep their eternal dream in the cemeteries of Tirgu-Mures or you are simply attached to our long-ago and (or) present community. In the two existing cemeteries (the old Suceava Street and the present Summer – Verii Street) permanent renovations are made. The majority of the monuments have to be repaired or renewed. The maintenance of the tombstones should be the duty of the relatives but these relations are most of the time also broken. Hence, we apply to You in supporting some of these works. Every little sum is welcome and we guarantee it will be used only the purpose it was sent for.

Yours faithfully,
Chairman of the Jewish Community,
Dr. Dub Vasile

The Documentation of Jewish Cemeteries in Tîrgu-Mureș

Our main goal is to offer a helping hand to all those who look for the graves of their ancestors, and at the same time to help in all kinds of burial place or family tree searches – say the authors of this webpage. For this purpose we have taken a picture of all the legible headstones even if they were broken or tumbled down. The current work is to synchronize the cemetery registry and the tomb photos.

Dear site or graveyard visitor! In this case, you have not to sit in front of the screen, or enter our virtual cemetery neither “with your head covered” because of “respect for our tradition”. nor with humility, maybe with curiosity. We provide an insight look into our centuries-old Jewish community - unfortunately, not in its life - but in its death. The members of our community have born, lived like everyone else. Their passing however is peculiar. Some of them were accepted into the mound, but there are many, ashes of whom flew into the sky literally meaning. This is testified by the large number of commemorative plaques …

These are the introductory words of the authors of this webpage George Diamantstein and Andrei Grünfeld.

The festival of Sukkot

The Feast of Tabernacles

The holiday commemorates the forty-year period during which the children of Israel were wandering in the desert, living in temporary shelters. Sukkot is also a harvest festival, and is sometimes referred to as Chag Ha-Asif, the Festival of Ingathering.

The Sukkah

The Feast of Tabernacles

Building and decorating a sukkah is a fun, family project. A sukkah must have at least three walls covered with a material that will not blow away in the wind. A sukkah may be any size, so long as it is large enough for you to fulfill the commandment of dwelling in it. One should live in the sukkah as much as possible, including sleeping in it.

The Four Species

Arba minim in Hebrew

Another observance related to Sukkot involves what are known as The Four Species (arba minim in Hebrew) or the lulav and etrog. The four species in question are an etrog (a citrus fruit native to Israel), a palm branch (in Hebrew, lulav), a myrtle branch (hadas) and a willow branch (arava). Every morning of Sukkot, except on Shabbat, it is the custom to hold the lulav in the right hand and the etrog in the left.
