Over the last few years, the JCA has taken a lead role in coordinating, funding and volunteering to bury the hundreds of thousands of Shaimos collected every year. The Agudath Israel of Baltimore is happy to be a drop off site for any community Shaimos and will properly prepare and bag them for burials which we do several times a year at the Mikro Kodesh Beth Israel Cemetery located on Bowleys Lane. To better streamline the process, we recently purchased a 40′ locked storage container on site at the cemetery to store the Shaimos prior to burials. For Agudath Israel of Baltimore Shaimos drop off inquiries or questions, please contact David Mandel at (845) 260-1091. For JCA related Shaimos burial questions, please contact Steven Venick at (443) 819-8152.

Please consider contributing to the Jewish Cemetery Association Shaimos Burial Program so we can continue to provide this service to the Baltimore community at no charge.
