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.
Planning for the future!

Please follow us on social media to stay up to date as we continue to make plans for 2021!
