Ohabei Shalom Chapel


Founded in 1903, the Ohabei Shalom Chapel is on the National Register of Historic Places and is a recognized historic landmark by Bostonian Historical Society and Combined Jewish Philanthropies of Greater Boston. Restoration is in full swing to bring this chapel to its full potential. It currently sits on the grounds of the first Jewish cemetery in Massachusetts, founded more than 175 years ago. For the first time, JCAM has received a generous grant from the Massachusetts Historical Commission’s Massachusetts Preservation Project Fund, to make critical repairs to correct the interior of the chapel. The money will be used to repair structurally unsafe aspects of the inside, such as the first floor framing, repairing the main entrance door and the first floor stairs leading up to the main chapel area.

The goal of this restoration project is to not only repair the chapel, but keep its historic integrity. We invite you to make a tax deductible contribution to the “JCAM Charitable Foundation” for the “Ohabei Shalom Chapel”, and be a part of this great historical undertaking.
