History[edit]

The Chevra B'nai Israel Adas Russia purchased the land as a Jewish cemetery in 1888.[1][2][3]

The cemetery is part of the Orthodox Jewish community of Omaha. It is a small cemetery that takes up about one city block and is relatively full. A circular drive runs down the center of the cemetery.
