Jewish gates and sections within cemeteries

A fairly comprehensive list of Jewish congregations, temples, burial societies, aid associations  with burals Within Jewish Waldheim, Menorah Gardens, Zion Gardens, Shalom Memorial Park, Palatine and other Jewish cemeteries. Each has either a discrete section, gate, or fenced cemetery within a larger cemetery complex. Each has a compelling history yet to be uncovered.  Please note that spelling variations often occur due to language and time frame.

NEWS UPDATE November 2017: This section will be enhanced greatly in the coming months as a brief history of the majority of the gates will be added. This is a time consuming but worthwhile project that will provide much additional information. Check back often as we add to this site.

This order is the oldest national Jewish fraternal order still in existence.  It was founded in New York City on January 10, 1849, by a group of men who were Masons and Odd Fellows. Its motto is “Friendship, Love and Truth.” It
still uses regalia, passwords, ritual and is organized in lodges governed by a Grand Lodge.

The order was originally called the Independent Order of Free Sons of Israel, and admits both men and women, 18 years of age or older, into its ranks.

Order of B’rith Abraham, a Jewish men’s fraternal order was first established in New York City on June 12, 1859. It was organized in a lodge system and provided fraternal benefits to its members such as funeral, sick and death benefits to survivors of members.

The order suffered a schism in 1887, when several lodges felt that the governing body of the order was incompetent. The breakaway branch formed the “Independent Order of B’rith Abraham“.  This branch is no longer in existence today, as it merged with the B’nai Zion in 1981. The parent body is now defunct also.

Order Knights of Joseph (O.K.O.J.)

Within Jewish Waldheim  Gate No.  36

The Order Knights of Joseph (OKOJ) was formed as a not-for-profit organization in the early 1900’s.  OKOJ is best described as a “cooperative or fraternal Insurance organization”. The parent organization was founded in Ohio in 1896 out of Cleveland.  Their objective was to sell graves (cemetery plots) and insurance to the thousands of immigrants who came to this country in the 1900’s.  They had branches in Indiana and Illinois.  The parent organization went out or was put out of business in 1964.

 

The insurance branches in Ohio and Illinois went into receivership in 1937 according each of those states Dept. of Insurance.  The Chicago, Illinois branch of OKOJ was still functioning as late as 1999 and maybe longer.

West Suburban Temple

Within Oakridge-Glen Oak Cemetery

This congregation dates back to the 1920s when Conservative Jews gathered for High Holiday services at a hall in Forest Park and in the former Oak Park Armory. In 1934-35 this group received a charter from the State to form a not-for-profit religious organization, The West Suburban Jewish Community Center. A rented store on Madison Street just east of Harlem Avenue in Oak Park served as the locus for Friday night religious services, Hebrew and Sunday School.
