Temple Emanuel, 201 Oakwood Drive, Winston Salem, NC, 27103, 336-722-6640, http://www.templemanuel.com/ Temple Emanuel was established in 1932. [September 2005]
Location: 1600 block of Utica St. in the southern part of Winston-Salem. Utica St. runs between Clemmonsville Rd and Palmer Lane.
The grounds, surrounded by a high wrought iron fence and locked gates, adjoins the cemetery of Union Ridge United Methodist Church. A key, required for entry, can be obtained from the committee that oversees the administration of the cemetery: The Jewish Community Council Cemetery Committee, Co-Chairmen: Mike Brenner and Barry Eisenberg; phone 336-725-8333 (Brenner Iron and Steel Companies) or Jean Lund [see below]. Purchase of space from a neighbor has permitted enlargement of the site in the late 1990s to about 10,000 sq. ft. With about 250 occupied graves, the capacity now is about 600 graves.
The original cemetery grounds first were purchased through the efforts of the Ladies Aid Society of Winston-Salem Hebrew Congregation. The earliest grave appears to be that of Jennie Miller who died in June 1922. Source: Jean Lund, 3159 Burke Mill Court, Winston-Salem, NC 27103; phone 336-760-2884.
