Communal Beth Olam Cemetery Trip

Sunday, September 10

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.
