Amherst Memorial Chapel, in conjunction with Elmlawn Memorial Park Cemetery, are once again holding a “Geniza” burial. In Jewish tradition, timeworn sacred manuscripts, and ritual objects, along with prayer books & bibles which contain the name of G-d are sacred and therefore require a proper burial.
Please join us (use the Brighton Road entrance) as we respectfully place the Geniza from our community into a grave. Participants are invited to bring any religious items that are no longer of use to the cemetery. For any additional questions or concerns please feel free to reach out to Mitch Steinhorn, at 716-636-4174
