Before a Jewish community builds a shul or even a school, they are required to build a cemetery. From this we learn that end-of-life issues, ritual burial and cemetery service planning are an integral part of Jewish life. With a tradition of faithful service, Congregation Shearith Israel has provided Jewish burial and cemetery services for more than 130 years.
