Beth El and Keser Israel Congregations merged to form Beth El-Keser Israel Congregation but each had its own cemetery. Beth-El-Keser Israel Cemetery Association, Inc manages the merged congregation cemetery. Beth El, a formerly Orthodox congregation called B'nai Israel, dates from the turn of the century. When their building was razed by redevelopment, the congregation relocated to a different section of New Haven and became Conservative. Some members, who wanted to remain Orthodox, merged with another Orthodox congregation, retaining the B'nai Israel name. The old B'nai Israel Cemetery, however, is part of Beth El's cemetery, located on Warner St. Members chose plots in either cemetery. Plots also are sold to Jewish non-members. Cemetery burials are indexed and computerized. Burial cards have NONE of the following information biographical data: next-of-kin info, funeral director info, or health dept. information. Cemetery Hours: always open. Flower Policy: permitted but plantings with approval. The active cemetery is not land-marked and has no regular caretaker. The Jewish community that uses this cemetery is Orthodox and Conservative. The urban flat land, separate but near other cemeteries, is marked by a sign in English. The cemetery is reached by turning directly off a public road with access open to all. A continuous fence and a gate that does not lock surround the cemetery. The cemetery is not divided into special sections. The oldest gravestone dates from 1892. Inscriptions on tombstones are in English and Hebrew. Adjacent properties are commercial/industrial and residential. The cemetery has been vandalized occasionally in the last ten years. Current Care: paid perpetual care. Within the limits of the cemetery are no structures. Security (uncontrolled access) and weather erosion are a slight threat.
