Preserving Jewish cemeteries safeguards that our heritage is not lost. It is a sacred responsibility to make sure we continue our legacy established by those who came before us. It is our promise to make sure no Jewish person is forgotten. This has been JCAM’s mission of preservation, restoration and continuity since 1984.
