In keeping with the Jewish tradition to honor the dead, CAJAC represents the organized Jewish community’s consolidated efforts to preserve Jewish cemeteries and to create permanent solutions for ensuring their long-term sustainability.
Through a collaboration of volunteers, community leaders and local agencies, CAJAC actively addresses the decline of Jewish cemeteries, frequently spearheading rehabilitation efforts to restore dignity and respect to distressed burial grounds.
CAJAC conducts a variety of volunteer programs including debris removal, gravestone reclamation, graffiti removal, and grave cataloguing. We also collaborate with genealogists to increase records on Jewish burials.

CAJAC has successfully leveraged private and communal funding to restore cemeteries and burial society grounds to proper conditions. In many cases, CAJAC has created a structure for the stewardship and management of restored grounds, ensuring charitable investments are optimized.
