  • Congregation Beth El of Cornwall, Ontario, had an earlier cemetery. However, in 1960, they dedicated a new cemetery in Long Sault, Ontario. Remains were placed into bags, removed from the old cemetery with a rabbi in attendance, and re-interred in the new Long Sault cemetery location. The re-interred graves are at the rear of the new Long Sault Cemetery. At the time of the 1960 dedication, Julius Miller was President, Archie Dover was Chairman of the Cemetery Committee, and Moe Schulman was Treasurer of The Congregation Beth El of Cornwall, Ontario.

  • The cemetery is located approximately twelve kilometers west of Cornwall on Route 2 on the south side of the road, just 1.5 miles west of the Route 2 and 35 intersection in Long Sault, Ontario, Canada. The Congregation Beth El cemetery is a separate cemetery adjacent to the Union Cemetery. Both cemeteries are fenced and have a recently black painted iron fence along the road. Several feet before the center entrance gate. two engraved marble dedication columns stand on either side. The estimated dimensions of the cemetery are 46 feet wide by 153 feet deep with more land available going back to the St. Lawrence Seaway. There are neither paths nor roads within the cemetery, although the defined center is wide enough for a vehicle. The graves on the eastern side and western sides face towards this center. The first area with the graves starts approximately 59 feet inside of the front gate. A vast open area occurs until graves resume in the rear section.
