Since the 1890s the Baron de Hirsch and Back River Cemeteries have been the final resting place of so many in our community—our family members, Holocaust survivors, well-known authors, rabbis and prominent Canadians, and even a victim of the Titanic. It is the mission of our organization to ensure that these hallowed grounds be well maintained for years to come and serve as a dignified setting that exudes serenity and respect.
You can help us achieve these important goals.
With the High Holidays upon us, as we contemplate renewal in our lives, help us to also renew our grounds. As the years pass, our sites require much ongoing work to protect the integrity of the cemetery. Repairing head and footstones, monument foundations, and the grounds themselves require substantial care and funds every year.
Please consider making a contribution to this important annual work by donating today.
We thank you for your continued support and wish you and your loved ones a shana tova umetukah.
