A Mission to Restore Dignity and Security to Sacred Grounds

PROVIDENCE CEMETERY RESTORATION PROJECT

Recently, The Providence Cemetery of North Main Avenue in Scranton, Pennylvania, an old Jewish cemetery dating back to the early 1800's,
was vandalized and suffered severe damage, where many of the memorial stones were overturned and the security fence around the perimeter was
compromised. As a result, The Providence Cemetery Restoration Project was created by the Amos Lodge #136 chapter of B'nai B'rith, headed by
Allan Davidson, Amos Lodge president, and Robert Yanover, immediate past president, whose mission was to restore the dignified condition and
structural integrity of the cemetery. With active financial help from the Jewish Federation of Northeastern Pennsylvania, the mission is
showing significant signs of success. The photos below, were taken, to show parts of the cemetery in its current improved state.

For information concerning the deceased at this cemetery, please visit The Providence Cemetery Resotration Project.
You will find on this website a directory of the deceased, which includes names, dates and row locations.
