The Friends of Jewish Dokshitsy, Inc. is a Massachusetts non-profit organization established to preserve the memory of the Jewish residents of Dokshitsy, Parafianov, and nearby villages in Belarus. The organization was incorporated in 2006 in response to a message from the Dokshitsy District in Belarus to help preserve the Jewish cemetery which was destroyed in 1965 and declared to be a park.
In May 2008 fourteen descendants and family members were able to travel to Dokshitsy to attend the re-dedication of the restored cemetery. The restoration was a cooperative effort of the Dokshitsy District and The Friends of Jewish Dokshitsy.
Future projects include preserving the remnants of a second cemetery much of which is a electric transmission station, and being sure that Holocaust massacre sites in nearby Parafianov and Begoml are appropriately preserved, and erecting monuments with the names of the victims of the Holocaust on the site where they were killed and buried.
