In 1882, 43 families escaped the pogroms of Russia and settled in this rural Southern New Jersey community as the first Jewish agricultural colony in the United States. They belonged to the Am Olam Movement that believed in a “return to the soil.” They organized a Chevra Kadisha and built a synagogue and in 1891 they founded Alliance Cemetery.
