  • Got the key and walked around to the cemetery. Few tombstones with Jewish writing on them, mostly broken and buried in the ground. Bit desolate and not terribly interesting.  more »
  • A beautiful cemetery-Orthodox-Roman Catholic, unique tombstones (very good descriptions of the most important ones) + nostalgic military cemetery.

  • Already in the 16th century in Lublin there was one of the largest Jewish communities in Poland, and in the years of treating the 1623-1764 Diet of the Jews of the Crown. Waad. Hence, by some of the city was even called the little Jerusalem. Strolling through the old town of Lublin, it's good to know that on the Castle Square, at the now-defunct Street, in the House at no. 28, many years ago was the navel of the world, the place where the sky merges with hell-this is apparently the best conversations with God. At the end of the 18th century in this House, indicated by the Kabbalah, a Tzadik Jakub Yitzhak Horowitz, because of the gift of clairvoyance called Vision of Lublin, founded Chassidic Court. They drifted to the Jews from all over the country after learning, the Council and in the end, to the common Latin dancing and singing during the Sabbath is fervent prayer. Hasidic Jews praised God not by Mortification and asceticism, but by the joyful use of the gifts of life. A prayer for chasyda was singing, dancing, outdoor sitting. Philosophy of the Seer of Lublin like contemporary lovers of strong beverages. Tzadik believed that consuming beverages drinks is a way to praise God. Drinking "nasty" alcohol is umartwianiem body, and the power of the spirits burns the evil lurking in a man. In addition, Satan prowling just on pure and undefiled soul sisters withdraws from the soul "broken". Tzadik Horowitz died as a result of a mysterious accident. In 1815, when the levitation went off through the window of his apartment. It was rumored that punished him God angered by his eagerly in anticipation of the coming of the Messiah. The tomb of the Seer of Lublin is located on the old Jewish cemetery. Kalinowszczyzna. To this day make pilgrimages to the Jews from all over the world, and left with him kwitłech-sticky notes with requests-show that still believe in his mediation with God. In the cemetery of noteworthy is also the oldest on the Polish lands of the tombstone of the Jewish talmudysty they will expand territorially, Kopelmana, who died in 1541.
