Hebrew Memorial was formed at the turn of the century as a immigrant self-help organization for mutual aid such as free loans, burials, etc. They also purchased property in Mt. Clemens as a cemetery. At that time, the site was far out in the country in an area familiar to Jews. Mt. Clemens was famous for their 'baths', probably a vein of sulfur water. Today, the area merely is more urban sprawl. The cemetery is large enough that, from the inside, you lose sight of the ugliness nearby. Hebrew Memorial burial society has a chapel in Oak Park, MI and their own cemetery in Mt. Clemens.
