About this page. My interest in matters Jewish was kindled by my attending a Heritage Festival walk researched by Wendy Antonovsky and conducted by Ari Antonovsky which they do annually for the Fremantle Heritage Festival. That is represented here in the page for their Heritage Tour. Repeated 4 June 2017, leaving from the Moores Building 10.00am Saturday.

Ari and Wendy also twice conducted a tour of the Jewish section of the cemetery, and they have very kindly shared that material so that it can be published here on this site. I'll add their notes to my page on the Jewish section in the cemetery, and also to pages for some of the individuals buried there.
