The first Jewish cemetery in the Boston area was that of Temple Ohabei Shalom in East Boston, founded in 1844. The cemetery complexes on Grove and Centre Streets in West Roxbury date from the mid-1880s. The Woburn cemeteries opened in the late 1890s. The cemeteries on Baker Street in West Roxbury and those in Everett opened in the 1920s. All the other cemetery complexes were developed in the early twentieth century. Diverse groups founded the early cemeteries. Some were congregational cemeteries, but other types of organizations started many others: landsmanshaftn (associations of people from the same European ancestral town), labor unions, fraternal, and charitable organizations.
