The Jewish Cemetery Association of Greater New Haven (JCAGNH) was formed in 2004 to address the needs of local cemeteries that were suffering from neglect. Sometimes this sad circumstance was the result of the fact that their founding synagogues or burial lodge societies had ceased to exist. Sometimes they were just financially unable to care for the cemeteries. them. Since its founding, the Association has made great strides in improving and securing almost 40 cemeteries under its care.
The JCAGNH Board of Directors is comprised of representatives from various segments of the community, including representatives from the local Jewish cemeteries as well as the directors of the two local Jewish funeral homes.
