Lo Tishkach European Jewish Cemeteries Initiative

Lo Tishkach European Jewish Cemeteries Initiative

The Lo Tishkach European Jewish Cemeteries Initiative was established in 2006 as a joint project of the Conference of European Rabbis and the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany. It aims to collate all data on European Jewish burial grounds in order to standardise legislation and best practice, guaranteeing the effective and lasting preservation and protection of Jewish cemeteries and mass graves throughout the European continent.

This project is looking to enrol students from different parts of Europe to assist in this task of creating a truly comprehensive list of European Jewish cemeteries.

Lo-Tishkach will pay $1 for inputting basic core data on every NEW cemetery record added to our database, which means that if you enter information on 50 cemeteries in a month, you will be paid $50. A cemetery entry should take you about 10minutes. This remuneration - which is dependent on the amount of effort & time invested -will be paid at the end of each calendar month.

One of the key aims of the Lo Tishkach Initiative is to set up, manage and gain significant community and organisational participation in a comprehensive database of European Jewish burial grounds which will, in due course, be publicly accessible.

The Lo-Tishkach Data Suite will: - Provide a User Guide which will explain the set-up of the database, & familiarise the various incorporated functions - Describe the minimum amount of core data required for each new cemetery record - Designate a username & password for each co-worker - Assign each co-worker with a Country / Region of which they will be tasked to gather the relevant data (to avoid duplicative records) - Advise of available sources of data & reference material to use - Back-up support for all queries etc.
