"Many of Belleville's former Jewish residents are buried in the Sons of Jacob Memorial Park west of Belleville on Highway 2, between Belleville and Trenton. The land for this cemetery was purchased in 1947, on the initiative of the congregation's president Mr. B. Mayer. Prior to the establishment of the cemetery, many of the congregation members were buried in Kingston or Toronto. Not all members of the Sons of Jacob purchased plots in the cemetery and it seems to have been a secondary priority for the small congregation, since some of the members may have already purchased family plots in other cities. A trust fund was established by the congregation in 1957 for more permanent upkeep of the cemetery." Source: [July 2015]

  • Congregation Beth El Cemetery: Source: Alan Greenberg
  • 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.

  • Kirkland Lake Hebrew Cemetery: Location: located in Krugerdorf, some 20 miles south of Kirkland Lake and 380 miles north of Toronto. Tiny Jewish populations in nearby Englehart (18 miles away) and Cobalt also used this cemetery founded in 1908. The town's peak Jewish population was about 125 Jewish families in the early 1930s: "a synagogue, a Hebrew school, a chevrah kadishah and, at one time, a kosher butcher and a Jewish men's softball team. The synagogue was sold in 1971; its Ark is now in the chapel of Beth Tikvah Synagogue in Toronto." The cemetery, no longer marked with a highway sign, is difficult to find. Source [November 2003]
