|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
Temple Bnai Israel Cemetery is a small Jewish cemetery. The cemetery appears to be located in Memorial Park Cemetery, however, the cemetery entrances is about 0.25 miles south of Memorial Park Cemetery entrance on the east side of the road; and is not associated with Memorial Park Cemetery.
There is a separate drive entrance off of Kelly, but you can walk to the cemetery from Memorial Park. There are approximately 200-300 burials, and two beautifully landscaped areas near the entrance. There is an electronic gate at the entrance. Right inside the cemetery there is a large circular monument with the name of the cemetery. Most of the internments here have flat memorial markers.
When you visit Temple Bnai Israel Cemetery you will find pebbles on a headstone which is an ancient practice and is particularly common among Jewish mourners. It is an act of respect on the part of the visitor, showing that the dead person has not been forgotten, continues to be remembered and loved by relatives and friends. Source: Jewish Virtual Library
