A finding in Chișinău

I never use in vain loud words like “sensational” or “miracle”. But the finding of our archeologists (thank you, dr Ion Tentiuc, dr Sergiu Musteata for your job and for letting us know!) in the very core of the historical Chișinău is sensational and a Rosh ha-Shana miracle.

A matzeva was discovered built in the basement. Fortunately very well kept, with clear text, dated back to Iyar 5534 – April 1774. Meaning this is the oldest matzeva discovered in Chișinău (the oldest so far are dated back to 1903, Pogrom victims).
