The Legacy Project at Mount Hebron Cemetery
Remembering those permanently resting at Mount Hebron Cemetery enables us to unearth important stories of those that came before us. They are not just stories of individuals, but a story of people who persevered to help create Queens, New York City and in turn, our country. We want these stories to come alive so that the legacy of these individuals and their cultural history will be available for generations to come. The story of the Jewish people is embedded here and we want to research, educate and make available these meaningful stories to public.
