Clifton United Jewish Cemetery
Also known as:  Ahabath Achim Cemetery, Clifton Cemetery, United Jewish Cemeteries Clifton

In 1848, Charles Kahn purchased the 1.3 acre parcel that the cemetery sits on. After his neighbors indicated that they would prefer he not build his house there, he sold the land to the Ahabeth Achim Congregation (which later became the Sherith Israel Congregation) for use as a cemetery. In 1931, Sherith Israel merged with Wise Temple, bringing the cemetery into the United Jewish Cemeteries. The cemetery is a Reform Jewish cemetery and is still active.
