Melrose, MA -- As we reported in our 2014-15 Annual Report, one of JCAM’s newest merger is the Netherland Cemetery in Melrose. Part of our restoration of this cemetery was to raise many toppled and broken monuments. We brought in master craftsmen to repair, raise and the final step—power washing of all the monuments and markers. Above is a sampling of the before and after pictures of these accomplishments.
The Netherland Cemetery was established by Dutch Jews in 1860 and fell into neglect and disrepair for many years until JCAM took it over in 2015. Now it is dignified, respectful final resting place and a meaningful space for the families to visit.
We appreciate our sponsors who help us with our mission to protect and enhance Jewish history through cemetery preservation. If you need help in any of these areas, click below to find information to reach them.
