Remainder of Jewish cemetery in western Poland rededicated

A Jewish leader says the remaining section of a prewar Jewish cemetery in western Poland where a famous 19th-century scholar is buried has been rededicated. The head of Poland's Jewish community Piotr Kadlcik says a small corner of Poznan's former Jewish cemetery has been restored and was dedicated Tuesday by Rabbi Michael Schudrich. This restores the cemetery's status as a sacred burial ground, although no further graves will be added. Kadlcik says "It is important to us that this could be saved" because the presence of the several hundred square-meter plot "shows that Poznan was a multicultural city." At the center of the plot is the restored grave of author and Talmud scholar Rabbi Akiva Eger.
