The Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia
mobilizes ﬁnancial and volunteer resources to
address the communities' most critical priorities
locally, in Israel and around the world.
Jewish Federation Seeks Additional Volunteers
to Address Desecration of Mount Carmel Cemetery
THE JEWISH FEDERATION of Greater Philadelphia is
grateful to the hundreds of volunteers who have already
stepped up to repair the world after recent criminal, anti-
Semitic acts in Greater Philadelphia. To date, Jewish Fed-
eration staff and volunteers have completed a major
spring cleanup of Mount Carmel Cemetery and begun the
mapping and inventory of each stone.
Additionally, the Jewish Federation fielded calls from
almost 100 families around the country who need help
determining the condition of their family members’
stones, and raised $220,928 from 2,984 gifts to support
the cleanup, repair and security costs at Mount Carmel
Cemetery, as well as the Jewish community’s growing
Now, the Jewish Federation is looking for additional
volunteers to keep this momentum going:
• 10 to 15 people are needed to type up the mapping
and inventory data collected at Mount Carmel
Cemetery a few hours per week at home, plus partic-
ipate in a weekly online team meeting. To volunteer,
please email Addie Klein, director of community
engagement, at email@example.com.
• Five volunteers are needed to come to the Jewish
Federation offices to call people who have inquired
about their family members’ graves. To volunteer,
please email Addie at firstname.lastname@example.org.
• To extend this same care to other historic cemeteries
requiring similar cleanups, volunteers are needed
to spruce up Har Nebo, just a mile from Mount
Carmel. Volunteer dates: Sunday, March 19, from
10 a.m. to 12 p.m., and Monday, March 20, from
10 a.m. to 12 p.m. or 12 to 2 p.m. This cleanup will
be in cooperation with Repair The World. RSVPs are
strongly encouraged. To register yourself, visit
jewishphilly.org/HarNebo; to register a group,
These ongoing community-wide efforts are establishing Restoring the headstones at Mount Carmel Cemetery. Photos provided
the groundwork to accomplish even more in the future at
Mount Carmel Cemetery. The fencing at the cemetery
will be repaired soon. A rabbinic advisory group will
oversee the restoration of stones, scheduled to begin late
March in cooperation with the National Park Service, an
expert in cemetery restoration and a growing group of
skilled volunteers and a community of preservationists.
Additionally, a rededication of the cemetery is being
planned for the High Holidays.
