Tótkomlós (Békés County), Hungary: 1906


This Yizkor-Book for the town of Tótkomlós was written on thick paper with gilt edges by the scribe Moshe Glick for the local Chevra Kadisha headed by Yehudah (Lipot) Itzkowitz and Pesach Levinger. The first sixteen pages are memorials (“Kel Maleh Rachamim”) composed in the scribe’s large, handsome hand for the dead, ranging from 1871-1905. Following these are many more pages in various hands with lists of names to be recited at Yizkor. The names are given in full in Hebrew and generally in Hungarian as well. Jews were only permitted to settle in Tótkomlós and other Hungarian towns after the Revolution of 1848. A Chevra Kadisha and synagogue were established there in 1884 and a Jewish school in 1895. It's Jewish population at the time numbered about 150. See https://dbs.bh.org.il/place/t-o-t-k-o-m-l-o-s.
