Site or database name: Old Jewish Cemetery of Chambersburg, PA

Description: Dating back to 1840, the Old Jewish Cemetery of Chambersburg is believed to be the earliest Jewish burial ground west of the Susquehanna. After almost a century of neglect and oblivion this unique monument of American Jewish history was restored in 1988 and again in 2000. The epitaphs were documented in 2006. They tell the fascinating story of German Jewish immigrants in 19th-century southern Pennsylvania and northern Maryland.
