Unveiling at Beth YeshurunGravestone Project Leaders, Bros Alan Lipman and Ivor Segall unveiling a stone at the Beth Yeshurun Cemetery.

The first eight stones for the Gravestone Project were placed on Oct 6, 2019 at ceremonies at four Houston Jewish cemeteries. Rabbis from each congregation presided over ceremonies to honor the known and unknown buried in each grave.

An additional eight stones were placed at Adath Israel (UOS) on Feb. 26, 2020 and eight more were placed at Beth Israel Memorial Gardens on Aug.2, 2020. This unveiling was postponed due to Covid-19 but was rescheduled - with social distancing and according to CDC & City of Houston guidelines as part of our ongoing Gravestone Project. Only 9 Brethren plus Rabbi Aaron Sataloff from Beth Israel participated. Kathy Parven from Beth Israel and our Scribe Bro. Mark K. maintained a distance to observe and take pictures.

Our President Bro. Joe Blog commented:

"Brethren, since only a maximum of 10 people were allowed, we did not pre-announce this event. Let's hope that the next unveiling has no restrictions and we can all attend."

Eight more markers have already been placed at Em Manuel's cemetery and the unveiling will be scheduled once the Covid-19 restrictions pass. We will also place eight more at the Beth Yeshurun cemetery soon.  

HOD Lodge Galil is proud to lead the project, but we need help from you.  Please donate, or click here for more information. Please email if you'd like to discuss the project in more detail.
