Sighet Walking Tours

The Sighet Jewish Cemetery is 500 years old, however many of the original tombstones are not to be found anymore, due to weather and the materials the tombstones were made of.

Sighet was in a way the capital of Chassidut and people from all over Europe used to come and visit.

Today many Chassidim are coming to visit the “Ohels- Graves” of famous Rabbis to pay homage to them as well as many feel that writing notes, praying and making a pilgrimage will cure their health conditions, bring a match to single persons etc.

If you wish to locate a grave please check www.sighet.org or /and contact Rabbi Ezra Berger ( This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) who devotes his time to the restoration of the Cemetery.
