Thousands of Jewish emigrants escaping religious persecution and economic oppression in Germany and Eastern Europe joined the Gold Rush to California.

They brought with them a strong work ethic and religious conviction. These settlers were among Oroville's earliest workers, merchants and civic leaders.

According to religious custom Jewish persons are buried in their own cemetery. This cemetery was established April 5, 1859. this plaque is donated by Congregation Beth Israel, Chico, California in memory of those original Jewish settlers.
