Chișinău, 29 January 2019
– The authorities started the rehabilitation of the Jewish cemetery of Chișinău, a national monument of history and art.
 
Consultations on the reconstruction plan were held during a fact-finding visit of Andrian Candu, Chairman of the Parliament, with the representatives of the Jewish Community of the Republic of Moldova, as well as with Paul Packer, Chairman of the U.S. Commission for the Preservation of America’s Heritage Abroad, and Tali Ploskov, Deputy Speaker of the Knesset of the State of Israel, Co-Chair of the Israel-Moldova Parliamentary Friendship Group.
 
The cemetery has been recently transferred from the administration of the Chisinau Municipal Council to the Ministry of Education, Culture and Research.
The Jewish cemetery, with an area of over 12 hectares and over 40 thousand graves, has been functional since 1887. It is one of the oldest cemeteries in Chisinau and was included in the list of national monuments of history and art. A part of the cemetery was destroyed during the Second World War. The cemetery includes several graves and monuments that are over a century old, as well as a funeral synagogue, unique in the Republic of Moldova, which needs to be repaired. Currently, burials are still taking place in the cemetery.
