Our Jewish cemetery has been providing a resting place for our beloved family members since 1927. Congregation Beth Shalom takes great pride in managing our cemetery according to the traditional Jewish guidelines. It is the responsibility of a Jewish community to look after the burial sites of not just our own loved ones, but the loved ones of others as well.
Revenue to the cemetery fluctuates and we need your help to provide stable funding for operations and to make further improvements. This year, with your support, we made improvements to the cemetery facilities and landscaping. We recently purchased a zero-turn mower and signed a contract with a new landscaping company to ensure that grass is cut regularly and maintained properly. We are currently investing approximately $90,000 to improve drainage, install catchment basins, and repave a portion of the cemetery roads.
Your tax-deductible donation to this operations appeal is segregated from funds used for the operations of Congregation Beth Shalom and will be used only to maintain and enhance our cemetery.
