“Mount Carmel Cemetery is once again a resting place.

In February, the historic Jewish cemetery at Frankford and Cheltenham Avenues was vandalized — about 275 headstones were damaged — but the burial ground’s monuments have been fully restored.

The effort was spearheaded by the Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia, and on Tuesday Mayor Kenney will get the first tour of the refurbished cemetery.”
