The Matzevah Foundation seeks to remember and honor the Jewish heritage of Poland that was once a vital and vibrant part of the country before the Shoah (the Holocaust). We do this through a variety of means including Jewish cemetery restorations, commemorations of mass graves and cemeteries, and through education.

Stay tuned to our website and social media for our announcement this spring of where our projects will be located!
