Who are we?

The Portuguese-Israelite cemetery Beth Haim is a National Monument from 1614 with monumental marble tombstones in a beautiful location in the middle of the village of Ouderkerk aan de Amstel. The tombstones tell us the rich and eventful history of the Portuguese Jews who settled in our country in the early 17th century. The Portuguese-Israelite cemetery Beth Haim in Ouderkerk aan de Amstel is maintained – maintenance wise – by the Castro Fund. The CEPIG board has final financial responsibility. Where the operational responsibility for the other activities of the Esnoga in Amsterdam has been transferred to the JHM, that for Beth Haim lies with the CEPIG and the Castro Fund. For the portion of Beth Haim where burials still take place (approximately one-twelfth), the Portuguese-Israelite Congregation (the PIG) is responsible for grave maintenance. The maintenance and management of the monument are paid for by grants and donations.

Visitors can use the app to walk around on their own or to be personally guided by an experienced guide. Visitors to the newsletter can sign up and unsubscribe independently. On the website, payment data are collected from grantors and donors who pay with iDeal. For the green maintenance volunteers are used. The name and address data of these volunteers are kept for the duration that they are active as volunteers.

Why do we process these personal data?
