Three municipalities in the African island nation of Cape Verde have signed agreements with a preservation group toward maintaining Jewish cemeteries.

The memoranda of understanding with Ribeira Grande (Santo Antao), Praia and Boa Vista will "pave the way for collaboration on physical restoration, research and documentation of the Sephardic Jewish families and on heritage tourism promotion," said a release this week from the Cape Verde Jewish Heritage Project.

The project, which has garnered the backing of Moroccan, Portuguese and Cape Verdean diplomats, is also asking the Cape Verdean government for monument status for the four Jewish cemeteries, which will facilitate fundraising for their preservation.
