It was typical for Jews who came to the United States and Canada to form fraternal organizations called Landsleit (countrymen). These organizations fostered the comfortable idea of a Jewish cemetery.
Elesavetgrad Cemetery was named for the old-country home of the Jewish grocers and shopkeepers who originally formed the cemetery association in the twentieth century.
The historical Elesavetgrad property is different than the large traditional synagogue-owned Jewish cemeteries.
We offer burial space to Jewish fraternal groups, smaller Jewish congregations, and individuals in the community.
