JCAM is a non-profit Jewish cemetery association. When JCAM was formed in 1984, it cared for 17 Jewish cemeteries, 5 of which were abandoned. Today JCAM owns and manages 123 cemeteries in the Greater Boston area. That is more than 50 percent of the Jewish cemeteries in Massachusetts. We are also the largest Jewish cemetery association in North America.
During our 30-plus-year history, JCAM has become an important Jewish cultural and historical resource. We are also the caretakers of the history of the Jewish community, not only in the Boston area but throughout Massachusetts.
We’ve come a long way in our 30+ year history! We are continually striving to find better methods of providing the highest standard of care and maintenance on Jewish cemeteries in Massachusetts. With our commitment to persevere and with the support of an enlightened community, you can trust that we will uphold our pledge of restoration, preservation and continuity well into the 21st century.
JCAM is the cemetery agency of Chesed shel emeth, but we cannot do it alone. We will need your help. Please continue to read through our web site. Enjoy our story and learn more about the work of the Jewish Cemetery Association of Massachusetts and the JCAM Charitable Foundation, Inc.
