Cemetery Plot Price Increase

In January 2020 the Cemetery Committee approved cemetery plot increases effective July 1, 2020. Due to the pandemic, these rate increases were changed to a January 1, 2021 start date. The rate increases for B’nai Jeshurun members at all four synagogue cemeteries will go into effect on January 1, as follows: Bet Olam – from $1,000 to $1,500, Chesterland – from $650/$750 to $1,000, Glenville – from $600 to $700 and Zion – from $350 to $700. Non-members pay higher plot costs and may not purchase plots at Bet Olam.

If you are interested in cemetery plots and want to purchase at the current rates, please contact Paula Botkin (216.831.6555 ext. 109) before the end of the year. If you have any questions regarding the cemeteries and these rate increases, you may contact Executive Director Jay Ross or Paula.

Thank you for your understanding, as these rate increases are necessary due to the increased costs of operating the cemeteries.


Our Cemeteries

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.
