  1. It is a nonsectarian cemetery – both Jews and non Jews are buried there. There is even one plot dedicated to people who died during Holocaust.

  2. I don’t wish to rain on anyone’s parade but the trees down in the cemetery were caused by a storm that moved thru the area about two weeks ago, not last evening. The cleanup should be completed by the end of the week.

  3. to #8 i agree with you when i passed the cemetery last week those trees were down and so were the gravestones. and to everyone else what does it matter what kind of cemetery it is.
