Juwish cemetery in Funchal

edited December 1969 in General
The local goverment in Madeira are asking for help in renovating the Jewish Cemetery in Old town in Funchal.
At present moment the Cemetery in in bad way, needs a lot of funds, and are lots of jewish people buried there here are a copy that was pub in Diario de noticias da Madeira. The local goverment ask for help to Israel goverment withno reply.
To me is a grate chame to let o place like that to be left so sad.
The people buried there reserve all the respect possible.
Also in Funchal is the remains of the Jewish Cinanogue? Church for sale at the moment. I do belive that juws from around the world must try to safe places like this.

  • Hi Joao,

    what do you think we in the forum can do?

    you know the place - it is not save to be prepared and opened for public vists.
    Every great storm can destroy parts of the cliff.
