Topic: Pioneer Jewish Cemeteries in the West

Stephen Kinsey will discuss the Commission for the Preservation of
Pioneer Jewish Cemeteries and Landmarks in the West, whose mission is
to preserve and restore the headstones and property of seven Gold Rush
cemeteries dating from the 1850s. Another vital component of the
organization is educating Jews and the community at large about the
roles and importance of Jews in the Mother Lode during the California
Gold Rush era. Stephen will also discuss these roles and the
significance of the Jews who settled in these areas.
Meetings are free and anyone interested is welcome to attend. Light
