On September 23, 2012, the Hebrew Cemetery Association broke ground on the construction of a beautiful Memorial Building.

The Memorial Building will provide space for funerals, memorials, meetings or luncheons for up to 40, and restrooms. The former White Marble Ark of Temple Beth El will find a permanent home in the building’s Mindy Ellen Levine Chapel. The walls are rising, and the building is taking shape. Completion is expected this fall.

The building is the major focal point of a well-thought out master plan. Included in this plan are enough new grave plots to double the existing inventory, additional walkways, completion of the wide circular drive, a main entrance water feature, and the Blumenthal Rock Garden

A quiet campaign was well-supported by community leaders in the first half of 2012. The Hebrew Cemetery greatly appreciates the generosity of Lori and Eric Sklut, Julie and Howard Levine, Patty and Bill Gorelick, Mattye and Marc Silverman and the Berlin Family, all donors of $100,000 or more. The early, behind-the-scenes financial support totaled $1.1 million, and was critical to moving the Hebrew Cemetery’s expansion plans forward.

Thanks to the generous support of the Jewish community, the Hebrew Cemetery's expansion project is well on the way to being fully funded. In the 3rd quarter of 2012, The Leon Levine Foundation generously challenged the community to raise $100,000 in new dollars toward the project, which the Foundation then met dollar for dollar. We are pleased to announce that the Levine Challenge match of $100,000 has been met and exceeded.

Donations toward the building fund are still in great need. We are depending on the entire community to participate and to make substantial commitments to reach our goal of $2,000,000. These monies will fund the expansion and allow the Hebrew Cemetery Association to grow its current endowment to fund its perpetual care. To date, more than 50 families each have pledged $5000 or more toward the cemetery’s ultimate goal. Pledges to the building fund are payable over 5 years.

If you wish to learn more about the cemetery’s expansion and how to make a 5-year pledge, please contact Bill Gorelick at 704-996-7776 / [email protected] or Marc Silverman at 704-362-0400 / [email protected].
