Jewish Cemeteries of Greater Cincinnati
Last year, we began marking veterans’ graves in the Walnut Hills Cemetery and the Montgomery Cemetery, 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.
This year, volunteers from The Valley Temple and two family groups, helped mark graves and put out flags for Memorial Day. And another group of volunteers trekked to the Price Hill cemeteries on a recent hot July morning to continue the effort there.
Contact us for information on helping with this project and be sure to subscribe to our quarterly e-newsletter to learn more about other projects and community engagement initiatives.
Work is moving along at the Kneseth Israel Cemetery, where the landscaping has been completed. Plans for a rededication of the cemetery are shaping up, while additional work continues to restore the historic columns at the entrance to the cemetery. Stay tuned for more information on the rededication and on our 200th Anniversary, celebrating the founding of the Chestnut Street Cemetery, the oldest Jewish cemetery west of the Alleghenies.
