Perpetual Care Fee Increase
At the April 2, 2019 board meeting, the Board of Trustees approved the recommendation of the Cemetery Committee to increase Perpetual Care Fees effective July 1, 2019. The new Perpetual Care fees will be $1,250 at Bet Olam Cemetery and $1,000 at Chesterland Memorial Park, Glenville Cemetery and Zion Memorial Park. All cemetery plot and perpetual care purchases after July 1, 2019 will be charged at this higher rate. These increases are based on a study of actual costs at our cemeteries and are required to assure that we properly maintain our cemeteries for today and tomorrow.
If you have previously purchased cemetery plots at any of our cemeteries, and have not yet paid perpetual care fees with these plot purchases, you will have to pay the increased perpetual care fees unless you pay these charges by June 30, 2019. If you are paying the current fees on a payment plan, or start a payment plan prior to June 30, we will keep perpetual care fees at the current lower charge. If you have any questions please call Paula Botkin or Jay Ross. Thank you very much for your understanding as we work to assure the long term viability of our cemetery operations.

In our Jewish tradition, the manner in which we remember the dead is the truest measure of the quality of life. At our cemeteries, this tradition is the hallmark of how we care.
Committed to this belief, B’nai Jeshurun Congregation owns two cemeteries. Glenville Cemetery was dedicated in 1875 and is one of the oldest Jewish cemeteries in Cleveland. Chesterland Memorial Park was dedicated in 1973, and is known for its peaceful, park-like setting. In addition, B’nai Jeshurun has sections in Bet Olam Cemetery and Zion Memorial Park.
Members of B’nai Jeshurun Congregation have the opportunity to purchase rights to plots in any of our four cemeteries. There is a deep and abiding satisfaction in the knowledge that by providing in advance for this inevitable need, you have forever freed your family from the emotional and financial pressures surrounding an emergency purchase.
