Welcome to our website

We’re glad to have you!

It is the objective of the GJH & GS to preserve the legacy of Jewish history and culture in Gombin, Poland, the town of our ancestral families.  We will preserve the record of our family’s roots and genealogy so that the history of 300 years of Jewish life in Gombin will not have been destroyed by the Holocaust.

The preserved record will serve as a basis for the education of current Gombiners now living all over the world and all future generations.

Keep up-to-date on our ongoing and past projects, meetings, programs, activities, and even conference calls!
