Cemeteries


Contact: Paula Botkin at 216-831-6555 ext. 109

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.
