Nova Scholem synagogue of Buenos Aires' Parque Chas neighborhood was founded by emigrants from Lyakhovichi and Baranovichi. Others soon joined them from other communities in the region. The emigrants arrived in the 1930s, the group was established in the 1940s and the synagogue building was constructed in the 1950s.
We see among the leaders of the congregation in the 1950s names that we see in among our Lechovicher community - Zakin (also written in Lyakhovichi as Zakim and Zakheim), Jelin, Walach, and Pripstein.

The indexed list from the photo is: BASZ, Leon; ZAKIN, Abraham; JELIN, Samuel; WALACH, Aron; PRIPSTEIN, Salomon; ZILBERSTEIN, Menasze; HOFFMAN, Peretz; PAPIER, Menajem; ZLOTOGWIAZDA, Marcos.

Association of Former Residents of Lachowicze in Eretz Israel

This is a list provided by Moshe Inditzky of Tel Aviv of the membership list in 1999 of the Association of Former Residents of Lachowicze. Mr. Inditzky offered us the membership telephone list in an ongoing effort to make information about Lyakhovichi available. Neville Lamdan has edited the list to protect those members privacy, but at this time (originally noted in 2005) we are able to publish the list of last names of Israelis who belonged to this society in 1999. People wishing to contact members of the Israeli group should send email to Mr. Lamdan - you can contact him via his email address in JewishGen Family Finder. Note in 2007 -If you are a member of this group and would not mind us posting the former last name of your family, that would be a valuable addition to this list that could help the members of the community network together more effectively. Contact us to let us know if we can share that info.

Lechowitzers Buried on the Mount of Olives, Har haZetim, in Jerusalem

The list of our landsmen buried in the Holy Land is barely started. The official count for those whose connection to Lyakhovichi was documented in the burial record is only 11 names but we know of a number that have not been included. Help us build this list!
Lyakhovichi 11
Kletsk 7
Byten 5
Kobrin 5
Novogrudok 19
Noesvizh23
Slutsk 52
That table shows the numbers from each of several towns near us known to have been buried on Har haZetim.

Since these record are not created by a purposeful seeking out of a hometown society, I have placed them on our page Primary Records of Other Nations - Eretz Israel. Please click the link to see those recorded from Lyakhovichi, Slonim, and Slutsk.
