Har Jehuda (also spelled Har Yehuda), located on 27 acres, was founded by Julius Moskowitz, a Russian-Jew, who was president of the Independent Chevra Kadisha in South Philadelphia . It was the first Jewish cemetery west of Philadelphia. Moskowitz, a Russian-Jew, decided to establish in the mid-1890s a Jewish burial ground for Eastern European Jews without regard to their country of origin. It was assessible by inter-urban trolley car that connected Upper Darby and West Chester to Philadelphia. It was the first non-profit cemetery established for the concentrated population of Eastern European Jews in South Philadelphia.
