Deane Road Jewish Cemetery Open Day – June 18th – 3pm – 7pm
You are cordially invited to attend the open afternoon at Deane Road Jewish Cemetery (just next to Lidl on Kensington) on 18th June.
We are very proud of our Victorian cemetery within which many famous and wonderful Jewish people are buried.
We have been working for some years now on a refurbishment project and we would like to invite you to come and have a look round while the work is still in progress.
There is a lot done and very much more still to be done, but the first step has to be inviting our agents, partners, staff, residents and politicians to come and see this hidden jewel for themselves. You might be interested in our project in terms of personally volunteering, organising projects, donating funds, or maybe you have Jewish ancestors who might be buried here? But whatever the reason, you are assured of a fascinating visit.
We are opening from 3pm until 7pm so that you can either attend as part of your working day or after work, it is very much a drop-in session. Come at any time within those hours.
There will be guided tours by committee members and our resident genealogist and we might manage a cup of OJ or water if the weather is nice
Please pass this on – let’s try for a champion turn-out
