Har Hasetim

Our Portfolio

Since its last burial in 1945, the cemetery has become overgrown.  We try our best to maintain it, and depend on volunteers to help.

The mission of the Friends of the Gladwyne Jewish Memorial Cemetery is to ensure dignity for those interred at Har Hasetim and their families while honoring the historical, cultural and natural significance of the site. We will achieve our mission by working together with volunteers and with the support of community partners primarily through restoration and maintenance of the graves and natural features, sharing the story of the cemetery, and providing access to information about those interred at the site.

Our History
