A visit to New York’s Mount Carmel Cemetery highlights how far American Jews have drifted from their immigrant ancestors, geographically and ritually. September 3, 2010, 7:00 AM. Gravestones at Mount Carmel Cemetery. In the New York area, many of the sprawling Jewish cemeteries date back at least a century and were chosen by immigrant communities seeking a burial place for their landsmen for generations to come. Rabbi Andy Bachman, of Congregation Beth Elohim in Brooklyn, knows these graveyards well-he often officiates at funerals in Queens and Brooklyn.

Segal wrote the 2007 book, A Self-Guided Tour of Monuments of Jews Buried in the Mount Auburn Cemetery, Cambridge, Massachusetts. Although Mount Auburn’s Jews chose to bypass traditional halacha upon burial in a Jewish cemetery, most of them were not ashamed of being Jewish, according to Segal. To the contrary, Jewish symbols, Hebrew dates, and even Yiddish words pepper many of the almost 50 monuments he identified as belonging to Jews. The pluckier figures include trapeze artist and clown Carl Meltzer, and firebrand anti-war activist Erna Rosenberg

Scoreboard Bleeding
What a useful little book! Jewish cemeteries abound, and they are a treasure trove of information about the communities that establish and use them. They can also be dauntingly mysterious, with Hebrew inscriptions and abbreviations that seem to be in code. Rabbi Segal has written a very readable book that will transform the mystery of the cemetery into an opportunity for Jewish study.

One does not need to be fluent in Hebrew to make use of this book, indeed there is much to learn and enjoy even if one knows only the alef-bet. However, readers who have no Hebrew at all may find it somewhat frustrating, since some of the most interesting parts of the text deal with gravestone inscriptions.

It was well written and through in all aspects. Highly recommend. A must read for historians and all persons who love cemeteries.
