Our Mission

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.
