The Montefiore Endowment Fund is celebrating the publication of the five censuses
(1839, 1849, 1855, 1866 and 1875) done in the Middle East as commissioned by Sir Moses Montefiore. IGRA salutes the project coordinators - Mathilde Tagger, Billie Stein and Rose Feldman and the many volunteers who helped to make this material available to the public. There will be three days of celebration in Jerusalem
from November 27-29, 2013.
Again IGRA plans to release additional new databases each day of Chanukah. Check out what to expect by clicking here to see our promo
