About Nathan Levy

Nathan Levy (1704 - 1753) was the founder of the first Jewish cemetery in Philadelphia and a prominent merchant. He engaged in the general commission business with David Franks under the firm name Levy & Franks.

The oldest decipherable tomb in the Mikvah Israel Cemetery is that of Nathan Levy. Among the other distinguished members of the Philadelphia Jewish community who are now interred at the cemetery are great American patriot Haym Salomon, influential pioneer Aaron Levy, members of the Gratz and Phillips families, scores of Jewish veterans of the wars of the American Revolution and of 1812, all alongside distinguished leaders of the Mikveh Israel synagogue.
