Welcome to Temple Israel
As you know, on Tuesday, November 5, it was discovered that numerous headstones had been toppled or dislodged from their foundation, and some of them had been irreparably broken. We have been working carefully and meticulously to account for each headstone.
Here you will find the current list of names from the headstones impacted by this vandalism. Please take a moment to review the list, as we are working on locating and notifying family members. If you recognize a name and can help us in finding living family, we would be grateful.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Executive Director Dennis DePorte, firstname.lastname@example.org or 402-556-6536.
It is our hope that the restoration will be completed sometime in the spring of 2020, at which time we will hold a communal ceremony of re-dedication and renewal of this sacred place, where our loved ones endure in spirit and in our memories.
If you are interested in donating to the repair efforts, please click here, or you can mail a check to Temple Israel, 13111 Sterling Ridge Drive, Omaha, NE, 68144.
