Recent Renovations: The B’nai Israel cemetery, founded in 1902, is owned by our congregation and maintained according to the many laws that govern Jewish cemeteries. We recently completed some extensive work on one of the original walls of the cemetery, a halachically mandated one desperately needing repair; this cost more than expected. We appeal to members of the congregation and others who have loved ones there to contribute to the Cemetery Fund to cover these expenses. Please make checks out to B’nai Israel Congregation, “Cemetery Fund” on the memo line, or use button
to donate online. Thank you.
