The Massachusetts Historical Commission awarded a $50,000 matching grant from the Massachusetts Preservation Project Fund to the JCAM Charitable Foundation. The funds will enable restoration work to begin on the exterior building and roof structure of the historic Ohabei Shalom Chapel in East Boston--future home for the Mystic River Jewish Exhibit Hall.
Editorial from the Jewish Advocate regarding the Ohabei Shalom Chapel restoration project.
More than 200 people turned out in East Boston to hear the JCAM Charitable Foundation's plans to restore the historic Ohabei Shalom Cemetery chapel into the future home of the Mystic River Jewish Exhibit Hall. The chapel stands at the grand entrance of the first Jewish cemetery in Massachusetts, Temple Ohabei Shalom Cemetery, founded in 1844. Click here for photos!
