Operation and Expenses

The Keneseth Israel Cemetery Association is self-supporting and operates with a volunteer board. No money from the Temple is used in the operation of the cemetery. The expenses of the cemetery are paid primarily from the sale of burial rights, the price for which includes perpetual care of the grounds, and as needed from the earnings of the Association’s investments.
