Congregation Beth Sholom (509) 943-9457

Sunset Memorial Gardens and Mausoleum: Jewish section is called Gan Sholom (Garden of Peace). Swift Blvd and Hwy 240; Richland, WA 99352; 509-943-0803. (915 By-Pass Highway).

Richland is a small, remote, windswept community. The cemetery is unique because of the Bohr atom representation on posts on either side of the entrance indicative of the community's involvement with the Nuclear Age. (The plutonium for the atomic bomb dropped on Japan was made in nearby Hanford.) Virtually all Jewish burials in the area were done by Einan's Funeral Home, 915 By-Pass Highway, Richland, WA 99352. A few Jews may be buried in Kennewick (an adjacent town that, along with Richland, is one of the Tri-Cities) in Desert Lawn Memorial Park (e.g., Lantor.)
