Burial information was gathered from synagogues, individuals and funeral homes. While many cemeteries, synagogues and individuals were helpful in allowing access to their records, old, damaged, incomplete, or missing records made the task of compiling information a challenge.

As a result, we know that there missing burials from the database that we were not able to gather. If you have information to share or corrections please click "Contact Us" and send us your information.

Commission on Cemetery Preservation

The Commission on Cemetery Preservation was created by the Jewish Federation of Cleveland in 1993 to promote and encourage preservation of Jewish cemeteries overseen by congregations and other organizations. It addresses issues that arise when a sponsoring organization is no longer able to maintain its cemetery.

The Commission, under the leadership of President Rubin Guttman, is currently conducting a Jewish Cleveland Cemetery Study to look at the synergies that exist between our cemeteries and develop strategies for how to best maintain our cemeteries in the years to come.
