JCAM is pleased to announce that five Jewish cemeteries have merged into the JCAM family.
The Pride of Brockton Cemetery, located on South Street in Stoughton, Massachusetts was established by the Pride of Brockton Lodge in 1901. Ms. Harriet Robie supervised the cemetery with dedication and was involved with its management for over 50 years. We are honored to have the Pride of Brockton Cemetery be part of JCAM.
Both Mishkan Tefila Cemeteries along with the both Hand in Hand Cemeteries, are located on Centre Street, West Roxbury and have been under the direction of Congregation Mishkan Tefila for decades. We are honored to include these four historic Jewish cemeteries into the JCAM family.
These five additional cemetery acquisitions continue to make JCAM the largest communal cemetery organization in the U.S, owning 123 Jewish cemeteries in Massachusetts. We are committed to providing the highest quality of care to all our cemeteries and fulfilling our mission of "Chevrat K'vod Hamet" (the society that honors the deceased).
JCAM's newest cemetery in Metrowest now features ... memorial wall. More than 5,000 grave sites are available for purchase and now 2,000+ memorial stones are available to honor loved ones buried elsewhere.Learn more.
