Roselawn Avenue Cemetery
619 Roselawn Ave.
It's two blocks east of Bathurst Street.
In 1906, a Jew was killed in an accident at the outskirts of the city and buried in a non-Jewish cemetery. Horrified that the Jewish community was not organized enough to deal with such occurrences, Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Weber, member of Goel Tzedec, bought land on what is now Roselawn Avenue for a cemetery. The land was donated to the Chesed Shel Emes (Hebrew Free Burial Society), which Weber organized himself. Through the efforts of Rabbi Gordon, head of the Goel Tzedc and the Chevra Tehillim congregations, the victim was moved to the new Jewish cemetery.
