Hebrew Cemetery
maintaining the memory

In 1867, Charlotte was a community of 4500. Among these citizens were a handful of devout Jews. Faithful to their laws and traditions, the Hebrew Benevolent Society purchased 11 acres of what is now Statesville Avenue to be their Hebrew cemetery.

This cemetery is truly part of history- both our history and that of Charlotte. A walking tour of the original grounds illuminates over 130 years of the Jewish community in North Carolina. Jews from every corner of the state are buried here.

Now painstakingly restored, the Hebrew Cemetery is a corner of the city that is unusual in it's beauty and serenity. The new brick entryway opens onto an enlarged memorial park containing the original site and the expanded grounds with spaces for upright headstones, in ground markers and a section designated for interfaith marriages.

Create your Jewish LegacyThe Hebrew Cemetery is one of 10 participating community partners in Charlotte's Create Your Jewish Legacy (CJL) initiative.

Through CJL we have committed ourselves to be part of an effort to build a strong, vibrant community now and in the future with bequests for permanent endowments.

CJL promotes the message that all of us, regardless of age, wealth, or affiliation, have the ability to make a difference for future generations.

Our CJL model, led by the Foundation for the Charlotte Jewish Community (FCJC) is modeled after successful programs already established in more than 30 cities including San Diego, Kansas City, Hartford, St. Louis, and Richmond.
