our archives

With the help of Documenting Maine Jewry,The Cedars has started to organize and preserve the records of its eight decades of service to Portland’s elders. Each month, we will feature a few photographs from our collection. (The full archive to date can be viewed on the DMJ website.)We would appreciate your help identifying some of the people in these photographs.

If you know someone in a photo, please email dmj@mindspring.com, referencing the photograph title and giving the person’s name with their location in the photo. This will go a long way to ensure that our history is preserved for generations to come. Thank you!
