Zolkiew and Mosty Wielki- Jewish Communities Organization

Zolkiew is located in Eastern Galicia. It was founded just before the turn of the 16th century as the City of Zolkiew. Mosty Wielki lies at a distance of some 30 kilometers from Zolkiew. It was founded just before the turn of the 15th century. In both cities, the Jews maintained a resplendent, vibrant community life. This community life was cut off at the beginning of the Second World War and very few of the Jews survived the Holocaust

It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of

Sam Halpern

Husband of Giza Halpern
of Livingston, New Jersey, U.S.A.

Sam along with his sons supported our organization of the community of zolkiew and contributed to it generously for many years. He was one of the pillars of our community in New Jersey, U.S.A.

Sam was greatly concerned about the continued existence of the State of Israel and worked enthusiastically in gathering support for it and for YadVsem. His concern for the needy was well known and his support for them knew no limits.
The Chairman of the organization & all the members send their condolences to his wife, sons and entire family.

We will always remember you!

A word from the Chairman of Zolkiew and Mosty Wielki Communities Organization

Friends, this website has been created for us so that we can maintain close contact between us, wherever we live in the world, and to document the glorious history of our families, our journeys into the past and our activities in the present that are shared by our children and grandchildren – for the preservation of the Jewish life cut off by the Holocaust – in eternal memory!
