Cemetery Details

Directions to Kever: Newark Jewish Cemetery along Grove Street 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.

Name Listed on Cemetery Database: Name listed on marker: Rev P Elias Scher

Biographical Notes:

Congregation Ein Yaakov established in 1898 was first located on 112 Prince Street and relocated a number of times. Its final home was on 11 Jones Street until it merged with other  Congregations in 1933. Like most of the Shules and Jewish landmarks in Newark, all the buildings have since been destroyed to make way for new housing or are still sitting vacant.
