A new project by the National Museum of American Jewish History aims to collect the stories of the people buried in the Jewish cemetery in Philadelphia.
The collection is hosted on Tumblr and allows anyone to contribute stories directly to the page. The site currently hosts two stories of Jewish women buried at the cemetery in the 1940s. New submissions can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Mount Carmel Cemetery was vandalized over the weekend with over 500 headstones damaged. The Chesed Shel Emeth cemetery in St. Louis was vandalized last week with over 150 headstones damaged.
