Edmonton's New Jewish Cemetery

Our community needs a new Jewish cemetery

For more than 100 years, dedicated community volunteers, from all congregations, have operated a charitable not-for-profit organization that cares for the deceased and for the cemetery where they rest. Soon, however, the cemetery will be full. 

Just as previous generations came together to found, develop and grow the current cemetery, it is now critical that the community come together to support the development of the new Jewish cemetery.

The anticipated cost of the new cemetery is about three million dollars

The budget includes all permits, land clearing and landscaping, in-ground servicing, roads, walkways, furnishing, fencing, security and a chapel. The goal is to have the new cemetery operational by 2022. The land is in place. Two-thirds of the budget is in place. Plans are in place.

What is needed is your support to raise the remaining one million dollars

The founding of the Edmonton Jewish Cemetery, more than 100 years ago, was an historic event.

This is your opportunity to participate in the next historic chapter; laying the groundwork for the next 100 years of the Edmonton Jewish Cemetery.
