Jewish Cemeteries of Greater Cincinnati
On September 8th, we hosted a wreath laying ceremony honoring Judge Robert S. Marx, a Jewish-American veteran of World War I who founded the Disabled American Veterans (DAV) and served as a lawyer, judge, and law professor in Cincinnati.
You can learn more about Judge Marx in this recent article detailing his impact. After an accomplished career and life of service to his country and to Cincinnati, Marx passed away in 1960. He is interred in the Walnut Hills Cemetery.
Last year, we began marking veterans’ graves in several of our cemeteries, as part of our recognition project, led by Boy Scout Ethan Zied. To support this amazing and important project to honor our veterans, click here.
