Jewish Cemeteries in Greater Philadelphia


One of the most important sources for this list was the AJGS Cemetery Project, an international effort led by Arline Sachs. Julian H. Preisler, Archivist for the Jewish Historical Society of Delaware and a JGSGP member, and Aaron Roetenberg, Chairman of the JGSGP Cemetery Project, were major contributors through their work with the AJGS Cemetery Project. A mouse click on the cemetery names underlined below links you to additional information in the AJGS Cemetery Project.

A date in parentheses after the cemetery name indicates when the cemetery began operations. Inactive cemeteries are listed at the end under INACTIVE CEMETERIES.
