The Commission for the Preservation of Pioneer Jewish Cemeteries and Landmarks in the West oversees seven historical cemeteries in northern California. These Jewish burial grounds were established by immigrant settlers during the California Gold Rush.
Their mission includes the restoration and preservation of cemeteries and landmarks relating to the Jewish presence in the early settlements of the American west. They provide educational materials and research opportunities to inform the public of the contributions made by Jewish pioneers to the development of the state, the nation, and the world. Stephen Kinsey is Chairman and Executive Officer of the Commission.
