In keeping with the Jewish tradition to honor the dead, CAJAC has spearheaded the Jewish community’s consolidated efforts to preserve Jewish cemeteries and to create permanent solutions for ensuring their long-term sustainability. Through a collaboration of charitable institutions, private donors, elected officials, and community leaders, CAJAC continues to actively address and remediate the decline of Jewish cemeteries.
