Re: Hebrew Cemetery, Asbury Park NJ #usa


Meyer is not buried at either the Agudath Achim or Chesed Shel Emes Cemetery.  Both cemeteries are near me and I walked both of them.  The Burial Secretary at Agudath also has no record of him being buried there.  The Agudath Cemetery was first established in the 1950's. The Chesed Shel Emes is much older but he is not buried there either.  Congregation Sons of Israel, formerly of Asbury Park and now Ocean, is much older but to the best of my knowledge most of the members of this synagogue formed the core of the chartering members of the Chesed Shel Emes. I was a member of this synagogue and there was never a mention of a synagogue cemetery other than the Chesed Shel Emes..  My father was secretary of the Chevra for over forty years.  Temple Beth El, formerly of Asbury Park, now Ocean, has a cemetery in Farmingdale which predates the 1930's also.  The synagogue merged with Temple Beth Torah and is now called Torat El on Monmouth Road. You might call them to see if their burial records go that far back.  Congregation Brothers of Israel is in Long Branch but I doubt anyone from Bradley Beach would have been buried in their cemetery.

Bodine Funeral Home was in Asbury Park.  It was bought out by Bloomfield Copper Chapels in Ocean.  It also was bought out by a large funeral chain but still operates under the name of Bloomfield-Cooper.  They did not have any details on a Hebrew Cemetery as per the press obit.
