Bricks In Walkway at HCBGHonor A Forgotten Child

Donations in support of our restoration of the Hebrew Charitable Burial Ground are very welcome. Most of the 1,400 interred here are children, many who were victims of common childhood diseases that today have largely been eradicated.

Please consider sponsoring a child resting in an unmarked grave with a donation for an inscribed memorial brick. You may choose a name to be inscribed by clicking here to view the list of names, or have us choose a name for you at random. Donations can be made online at our Web site, or you can download a Brick-By-Brick donation form and mail it in.

Your donation of $118 per brick ensures that a child resting in an unmarked grave will be forever memorialized in the walkway of this historic cemetery.
