Our in-person Jacobs-Jaffa Charlotte Jewish Heritage Tour, provides unique, engaging, entertaining and educational hike through our city’s history. The experience includes a tour of the Hebrew Cemetery that was founded in 1867 and is rich with stories of the famous Jews who are buried there, from the Civil War to the Civil Rights era to today. We explore historic sites that highlight Jewish contributions to our county and state, as we uncover the pluralistic and powerful Jewish community that thrives in Charlotte today.
