Commission to preserve national monuments have nominated national monument Jewish burial ground in Sarajevo for the Jewish Heritage Grant Program under patronage of the World Monuments Fund.
World Monuments Fund Jewish Heritage Grant Program (JHGP) was formed in 1988 in response to the widespread neglect of the rich architectural heritage of Jewish communities around the world. JHGP is chaired by the Ronald S. Lauder. A period of research and documentation enabled World Monuments Fund (WMF) to assemble an invaluable archive on the condition of Jewish sites in Eastern and Central Europe, and parts of North Africa and Asia. Several of these synagogues have been saved and WMF continues to advocate for the survival of many more.
The World Monuments Watch List of 100 Most Endangered Sites has included sites from JHGP programme:
- Kahal Shalom Synagogue (Rhodes, Greece);
- Jodensavanne archeological site (Redi Doti, Suriname);
- Zhovkva Synagogue (Ukraine);
- Subotica Synagogue (Serbia).
