    There is a small Rabbi Twersky section in Mount Judah Cemetery. It is about 11 graves wide. The following are just a few of the people buried there:
    Abzug, Isaac 9/15/17
    Cohen, Rose 2/8/18 (48)
    Detter, Samuel 12/29/17
    Diamond, Minnie 10/20/18 (26)
    Fluss, Hyman
    Galaif, Mate 11/16/17
    Glaubach, Sam 10/25/18 (25)
    Goldberg, Israel 12/27/17
    Goldstein, Morris 12/27/18 (28)
    Gurko, Helina 9/16/17
    Lewinter, Mollie 10/17/18 (20)
    Lipset, Agner 6/2/18
    Mendelsohn, M. 4/27/17
    Rothstein, Dina 3/__/18 (69)
    Tabak, Isreal 12/20/18 (60)
    Uleis, Mendel 3/1/18
    Wroobel, Sarah 3/23/17

    Is there a connection between the Mount Judah section and the Rabbi buried at Beth David? If so, why wasn’t the Rabbi buried in his section at Mount Judah?

    There is also a Rabbi Twersky section in Mount Lebanon.

    The Rebbe actually purchased all these plots and was originally going to be buried in Mount Judah and then Mount Lebanon. In the end he decided on Beth David because some of the people buried in MJ and ML where not shomer shabbos.

    Sarah Wroobel is my Great Great Aunt. Any way to get a picture of her marker? I don’t live close, and I’ve been doing the family’s genealogy for years. Sarah died young, had one child.
