33rd Annual Newark Cemetery Visiting Day

It is traditional to visit the gravesites of loved ones during the high holidays.  The Jewish Federation of Greater MetroWest NJ and the Essex County Sheriff’s Department announce the Annual Newark Cemetery Visiting Day at the following historic Jewish cemeteries of Newark:

  • Grove Street Cemetery
  • Talmud Torah Cemetery
  • Union Field and B’nai Abraham Cemeteries
  • McClellan Street Cemeteries

Visit the graves of loved ones, pay respects to founders of our Greater MetroWest community, experience first-hand how Federation, the Jewish Community Foundation of Greater MetroWest NJ (JCF) and Beth El Memorial Park Foundation have revitalized these cemeteries, and learn about ways to get involved.


The shaded areas on this map indicate the sites included in the Grove Street and South Orange Avenue areas. Detailed cemetery information, including for the McClellan Street area near Newark Airport, will be available at the office of Raiken Monuments at 308 Grove St., Newark.  

Masks and social distancing will be required. Registration for visiting day is not required, but is appreciated. To register, click here.
