Restoration of Eastern European   
Jewish Cemeteries Project, Inc.

A not-for-profit organization which organizes and
leads restoration endeavors to Eastern Europe, our
foundation works with a diverse population of
domestic and foreign organizations to allow groups
of all ages to make a difference in Jewish culture.
Annually, groups of volunteers work to undo the
destruction of Jewish cemeteries caused by the
invading Nazis during World War II.

The physical goals of our organization are to: install
iron fences around Jewish cemeteries; many of
which are now only barren fields with no perimeter
demarcations and only a few gravestones in view.
We also locate and right grave stones, clear the
overgrowth, and archive the names, dates, and
identities of those who lay at rest. By virtue of this
work, a discarded cemetery is brought back to life
and given the respect it deserves.

Sadly, Jewish cemeteries throughout Eastern
Europe are still being destroyed by  lack of care,
commercial interests, and the effects of time. This
is a great loss to Jewish history. Further, the
memory of Jews who contributed so much to the
cultural and academic life of Eastern Europe is
slowly being eradicated.

Why restore Jewish cemeteries
in Eastern Europe?








The Holocaust, the intentional
destruction of the Jews, their
synagogues and their culture by
the Nazis, also led to the
eventual decay of their
cemeteries as well, resulting in
the disappearance of the names
and identity of family members
buried in these sacred grounds;
each atrocity adding to the next

Six-million Jews were lost and
thousands more displaced as a
result of the Holocaust. And into
today, their family cemeteries
remain uncared for and in ruins.

It is up to us to honor them and
their heritage by keeping these
sacred grounds holy.



WE CAN DO THIS FOR THEM.
WE CAN GIVE THEM BACK
THEIR NAMES.
