Cemetery Details

Directions to Kever: The Talmud Torah Cemetery is part of the Newark Jewish Cemetery network and is located at 616 S Orange Avenue in Newark, NJ. Although in a constant state of cleanup, the Newark Jewish Cemetery is in extreme disarray and can be dangerous, use caution when visiting!!! In addition to the actual cemetery, the surrounding areas have long past their prime, visiting as a group or waiting until Annual Newark Cemetery Visiting Day in September is strongly recommended. Should an Emergency arise call 911. Location: Talmud Torah Cemetery located at 616 S Orange Avenue, Section: Cong. Tifereth Zion (3rd society at the left of the path when coming from the South Orange entrance). The highway in the background is the Garden State Parkway
