• Sweeping Arch & Glorious Gates

    Founded in 1851, the Hebrew Charitable Burial Ground in Malden was the final resting place for indigent Jewish families, mostly immigrant children resting in unmarked graves.

  • Commemorative Monument at Entrance

    When we pay homage to those who came before us, we dignify our lives too, they are part of us -- we are part of them. So, the covenant passes from generation-to-generation.

  • Remembering The Forgotten Children -- 1,188 of 1,439 were children 5 years old or younger

    Of the 1,439 decedents resting at Hebrew Charitable Burial Ground, nearly 1,200 are children age five years old or younger. In the era before immunization, immigrant children, impoverished and suffering from malnutrition, were prone to many diseases that often proved fatal.

  • Children Memorialized -- Innocent Play

    The innocence of the forgotten children is captured in a bronze memorial, reminding us of the immigrant journey to America -- the new promised land.

  • Memorial Marker Bricks -- Please Contribute

    Most immigrant families around the turn of the 20th century did not have the resources to erect monuments. Only 150 monuments dot the completely full cemetery where 1,439 decedents rest. JCAM is creating symbolic brick memorials to honor the forgotten.

  • Headstones Restored Dignity

    Many broken and downed monuments on site have been restored to their original dignified condition by local craftsmen.

  • More Repairs Are To Come

    Others are in the process of being restored so the cemetery can, once again, be a place of respect and honor.

  • Phase Two of Restoration

    The second phase of the restoration of the Hebrew Charitable Burial Ground in Malden will be to restore the staircase that leads to the upper level of the cemetery and to a new memorial garden for quiet reflection.
