Join Volunteer Docent Helen Abrams as she shares the lives of Jews buried around the Willow Pond area during the last 60 years. Learn about the men and women whose courage, creativity and activism changed the course of history. Since no Cemetery records were kept of religious preference, how are scholars and researchers identifying people of Jewish descent? How does Mount Auburn accommodate Jewish burial practices?
