Yiddish Theater Notables - Mt. Hebron Cemetery in NY #yiddish


David Harris <dorsharris@...>
 

It was brought to my attention by Judi Langer-Surnamer Caplan, that
Mt. Hebron Cemetery in Queens, NY has a section of burial plots for
members of the Yiddish Theatre Alliance. The Alliance section is
located in Block 67. Judi was kind enough to include a photo of the
grave of Maurice Schwartz, a founder of the Alliance and a noted
actor on New York's Yiddish stage. If interested in an email photo
attachment of the grave stone, please
email me directly at
<dorsharris@verizon.net>

A listing of names in that section can be found at

For IAJGS attendees joining the bus trip to Mt. Hebron, if there's
time to spare, you may wish to visit the Yiddish Theatre Alliance
Section. Possibly, a future YT&V web page could be designed to
include photos >from Mt. Hebron and other cemeteries with Yiddish
theater and Vaudeville notables. So, if taking photos at the
cemetery, please try to take additional photos at the Yiddish Theatre
Alliance Section.
