Join us for our annual visit to Beth Olam Cemetery, sponsored by the Hebra Hased vaAmet.  Members can visit the graves of loved ones before the High Holidays and recite a memorial prayer in the metaher house (aka the Vaux chapel).  This event is family-friendly and deeply meaningful to people of all ages. A tour of the grounds will be given by our sexton, Zachariah Edinger.
