Sad News

We regret to announce the passing of Allen Halberstadt, z'l, who was Chair of the Cemetery Committee of JGS Toronto, and who often collaborated with JewishGen. 

His work coordinating JOWBR records will serve as a living memorial and will help generations of researchers long into the future. Allen was recognized with IAJGS’s “Salute” in 2012 (http://www.iajgs.org/awards/Halberstadt.html) for the work he was doing with JewishGen’s JOWBR database.

The funeral took place this past Sunday (February 16th) in Toronto. Shiva will conclude Friday morning, February 21st. Please click here for more information.

May the family be comforted among the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem.
