I have answered Batya privately, but just for the greater genealogical
knowledge, Rodeph (not Rodesh) Shalom cemetery is Union Field Cemetery in
Ridgewood, Queens, NY. Union Field is owned and operated by Congregation
Rodeph Shalom of Manhattan and serves as the burial ground for that Reform
Jewish congregation, but there are approximately 60 other burial societies
in Union Field Cemetery that are not connected with the synagogue.

For directions on how to get to Union Field Cemetery by public
transportation, please go to on the
NY Conference website.
