Jewish Cemetery Association of Greater Baltimore Welcomes You

Our Mission

Provide for the on-going efficient and effective care and leadership of Jewish cemeteries in the Baltimore area

Addressing the vandalism on
German Hill Road

Sometime around the July 4th weekend, 13 monuments were vandalized with swastikas in a JCA cemetery on German Hill Road (Ohr Knesseth Israel Anshe Sfard). Immediately upon learning of this, JCA acted to have monuments immediately cleaned and the graffiti removed. The police have been notified.

“Fortunately, we have the infrastructure within the Jewish Cemetery Association of Greater Baltimore, to respond quickly and provide dignity for the memory of our loved ones."
