Graveyard Rabbits



Our good friend Schelly from Tracing The Tribe is involved in an exciting new blog called "Jewish Graveyard Rabbit.” Yes, you read that correctly and no, it is not misspelled.

From Schelly's opening description, this new blog will

“be international in scope, with a team of contributors providing expert knowledge of cemeteries around the world in all countries, preservation/restoration projects, Jewish burial and mourning customs, Jewish tombstone symbols and how to read a Hebrew tombstone to learn what genealogical information may be gleaned. Where differences exist, the blog will address Ashkenazi, Sephardi and Mizrahi customs and issues. Photographs will be included, as well as extensive links to sites providing relevant Jewish cemetery information.”
Judging by the content already posted, this new blog will serve as a valuable resource to current and future geneaologists.

  1. Thank you for the pointer to both Tracing the Tribe and the new International Jewish Graveyard Rabbit blog. I frequently catch myself writing "rabbi" instead of "rabbit." The newest contributor to the blog is the first Rabbi in Rabbit World, Gary M. Gans of New Jersey.
