Rotterdam Cemetery Restoration Campaign

A CAJAC Initiative

Congregations Agudat Achim and Beth Israel of Schenectady.

Congregation Beth Shalom of Clifton Park

CAJAC is responding to a major desecration of Jewish cemeteries in the upstate New York area – Congregation Beth Israel and Agudat Achim of Schenectady, and Congregation Beth Shalom of Clifton Park. Approximately 100 monuments were toppled, and it is believed this occurred in April 2024. 

Here is a recent article detailing the vandalism.

We are assisting all three congregations to respond to this horrific event. Unfortunately, in today’s hostile environment, we cannot ignore the possibility that further attacks on our Jewish cemeteries will take place.

Thank you again for your past support of CAJAC; it is your donations which enable us to respond to this tragic event and to help us to marshal the resources to assist synagogue leadership to respond in a timely and effective manner.
