The Lo Tishkach Foundation European Jewish Cemeteries Initiative owes its success to the generous assistance of the following organisations:


The Conference of European Rabbis (CER) federates Jewish religious leaders in over 40 European countries and includes all the continent’s chief rabbis and senior rabbinical judges. The CER holds consultancy status as an international non-governmental organisation at the Council of Europe and within the institutions of the European Union.


The Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany works to secure compensation and restitution for survivors of the Holocaust and heirs of victims. Since 1951, the Claims Conference – working in partnership with the State of Israel – has negotiated for and distributed payments from Germany, Austria, other governments, and certain industry; recovered unclaimed German Jewish property; and funded programs to assist the neediest Jewish victims of Nazism.



The mission of Genesis Philanthropy Group is to develop and enhance Jewish identity among Russian-speaking Jews worldwide, with a particular emphasis on the former Soviet Union, North America and Israel. GPG is committed to supporting and launching projects, programming and institutions that are focused on ensuring that Jewish culture, heritage and values are preserved in Russian-speaking Jewish communities across the globe.
