Rashkiv Jewish Cemetery
The exact period of the cemetery’s establishment is unknown. Presumably, the cemetery was operating until WWII and was demolished in the 1960s-70s.
Jews are known from the early 18th century. In 1790, the Jewish community numbered 634 people. Rabbi Shabbetai set up a Hasidic dynasty in the 19th century. The Jewish population grew to 3,201 (54,9% of the total population). A Talmud-Torah and two shools for girls functioned in 1910. In 1918, the Jewish community of Rashkiv suffered a pogrom. Under the Soviet regime, a Jewish kolkhoz was established. The Jewish population declined to 2,031 in 1926. The German-Romanian troops captured Rashkiv in July 1941. More than 100 Jews were executed during the occupation.
