The Jewish Cemetery Association of North America (JCANA) http://www.jcana.org, representing over 300 Jewish cemeteries across the United States and Canada, stands in solidarity with the Jewish community of France. JCANA strongly condemns the desecration of the historic Jewish cemetery in the Alsace region of France that occurred over the last few days where over 250 historic monuments were vandalized.
JCANA believes deeply in the continuity of Jewish values and our members are devoted to the preservation and continuity of Jewish burial places and the promotion of ethical standards in Jewish cemetery management.
As leaders of the Jewish cemetery community in the United States and Canada, we stand as one with our Jewish brethren during this difficult time.
