Rezekne Jewish Cemetery New York

As former residents of Rezekne arrived in the United States in the early part of the 20th century those living in the New York City area formed a burial association. Judy Simon has kindly provided us with copies of the charter documents, photos of the leadership, copies of the constitution. Follow this link to see these interesting details. B'ne Rezitza
