The Jewish Grounds of Oakland

September 3, 2023 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am

Free
Visit Oakland’s three Jewish burial sections and learn about Atlanta Jewish history during this 75-minute guided tour!

Oakland Cemetery is home to three Jewish burial sections, including the second oldest Jewish burial ground in Georgia. This tour examines notable residents, Jewish burial customs, and symbolism found throughout these grounds. Hear stories of adversity and triumph as waves of Jewish immigrants and families arrived in Atlanta, adapted to the culture of Victorian America, and created a vibrant and active community.

This tour starts at the Front Gate (main entrance at Oakland Avenue and MLK Jr. Drive) at 10:30 AM. Please arrive a few minutes early to check in at the volunteer desk inside the Visitor Center (located adjacent to the main gate) before meeting at the Front Gate.

Spaces are limited, so we recommend purchasing your tickets in advance.

Accessibility

Not all areas of Historic Oakland Cemetery are wheelchair accessible. Please let us know if you need an accessible route when purchasing your ticket.

ASL interpreter available if given 3 days (72 hours) notice before the start of the tour.
