Dear Friends and Supporters of CVJHP,
2017 has been a year of great success for CVJHP! Thanks to your support we achieved a major milestone. Since our inception in 2008, CVJHP has encouraged the government to enact legislation to protect Jewish heritage sites. In June of this year, the Government of Cape Verde officially classified its nation's Jewish cemeteries and other places of Jewish memory as "National Historical and Cultural Patrimony" or "Património Histórico e Cultural Nacional." CVJHP is so grateful for this symbolic and legal gesture.
