The General information on Bayside Area Cemeteries in Ozone Park, NY, USA


ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS:The collection and submission of data for these databases are dedicated to the memory of David Gevertzman whose search for the grave of his great-grandmother led to the research for Bayside, Mokom Sholom and Acacia Cemeteries. David was instrumental in this research and his continual "nagging" brought it to where it is today.  This work consumed fifteen years or more of David's and my life. Additional thanks to Maurice Kessler for his time and effort transcribing the data from paper records to the JOWBR excel templates.

  • BAYSIDE CEMETERY: Congregation Shaari Tsedek at 80-35 Pitkin Ave; Ozone Park, NY; 718-843-4840 owns Bayside. They are in financial trouble and are looking to sell it but there have been no buyers for the cemetery. [information date prior to 2000] Some death certificates for Mokom Sholom state Bayside Cemetery as the place of interment.
       UPDATE: "...The office was basically closed. ...There was nice woman who was in the office on occasion and when I tried to get information from her she was unable to answer most questions. ... The cemetery needs maintenance plus it has old maps and card files. As one of the oldest Jewish cemeteries in the New York City area I am sure it would be great information, but it would take a group of volunteers and some cooperation from the cemetery to computerize the records and make the information available. It is not a small cemetery either. Source: Allan Jordan on JewishGen Digest: [6 Nov 2001]
        UPDATE: "Shul Silent On Cemetery Database" by Julie Wiener - The Jewish Week: A Mormon volunteer compiled a database of burial records for Bayside Cemetery, which dates back to 1842 and has approximately 35,000 graves. ... much of which is overgrown with weeds and poison oak ... However, Congregation Shaare Zedek, the Upper West Side synagogue that owns the cemetery, is ignoring Wamsley's request for permission to upload the data, even though he said the immediate past president agreed to the idea back in 2003. ... Rabbi Mark Ankcorn has not responded to Wamsley's numerous phone calls and e-mail messages over a nearly five-month span. The rabbi did not return repeated phone calls from The Jewish Week seeking an explanation, nor did Shaare Zedek president Joel Shaiman. .... caretaker, Bob Martorano, ... long troubled cemetery in Ozone Park. ... the rampant vandalism, toppled headstones and other problems at Bayside — he organized a major cleanup effort. Over the course of four days, Wamsley mobilized approximately 300 volunteers, most of them Mormons from low-income neighborhoods, to clear weeds and vines, remove garbage and generally try to make the cemetery — much of which resembled a rainforest — accessible to visitors. Wamsley's cleanup coincided with another volunteer effort, facilitated by City Councilman Joseph Addabbo and local funeral directors Leslie and Ralph Francisco, to repair the 35 badly vandalized mausoleums at the cemetery. That project was not completed, however, because the volunteers became disgruntled by Shaare Zedek's failure to cooperate. “It was disheartening to see the lack of effort on the other side,” recalled Addabbo. The 2003 cleanup did not solve all the cemetery's woes, but was a major improvement. Since then, the cemetery's small staff has managed to maintain most of the area that was cleaned. However, large swaths of the cemetery, particularly toward the back, remain overgrown and inaccessible, and many headstones are still damaged. Interviewed about the situation in '03, Shaare Zedek officials repeatedly said they lacked the financial resources to clean and maintain the cemetery, and had tried unsuccessfully to get broader Jewish communal support for it. ... “ There are Civil War veterans buried there,” Marmor said. “Both Bayside and Mokom Sholom go back to the 1860s, and there is unbelievable historical information in those cemeteries.” ... Robert Friedman, director of genealogy at the Center for Jewish History, said that while it's “fabulous for researchers” to have access to burial records on the Web, cemeteries are often reluctant to post them, sometimes because they want to protect the privacy of families with members buried there and sometimes for proprietary reasons — they want researchers to contact the cemetery directly to request information and perhaps make a donation. Joachim said there is a debate within the Jewish genealogical community over the ethics of publicizing records on the Web. While many people want the greatest amount of access possible, others want to protect privacy. ... Wamsley argues that Shaare Zedek posting its burial records on the Web might help raise badly needed funds to maintain the cemetery and bring Bayside to the attention of “people who have family buried there and may be interested in paying into the perpetual care fund.” Source: [October 2005]

  • MOKOM SHOLOM: 80-07 Pitkin Ave., Ozone Park, NY 11417. 718-845-6030. The data was collected by Florence Marmor, David Priever, and David Gevertzman. Source and contact for all three: Florence Marmor; A web page gives the history including free burials: . Florence Marmor provided the following statement and information:
    Mokom Sholom Cemetery of Bayside, founded in 1865 by Congregation Darech Amuno of 53 Charles St., New York City is located in Ozone Park, Queens between 80th and 81st Streets and Pitkin and Liberty Avenues, the smallest of three adjoining cemeteries. The largest is Congregation Shaari Tsedek's Bayside Cemetery and then Acacia Cemetery. Mokom Sholom death certificates state Bayside as the place of burial. Maps including a current tax map show Mokom Sholom as part of Bayside.
         Congregation Darech Amuno sold the cemetery to the Avenue M Jewish Center of Brooklyn in 1967. About August 1977, Avenue M's Rabbi, Sidney Applebaum, avoided prosecution for gross neglect of the cemetery as well as mismanagement of its funds by agreeing to repay a certain amount of money and yeild ownership of the cemetery to the State of New York. As part of their case, the state probably photographed and inventoried the societies. When I first visited the cemetery in 1979, I saw broken tombstones thrown about, lying in heaps. This condition existed until approximately 1994. The state gave the cemetery to a group of plot owners who managed it for a few years and when unable to continue, they relinquished control to a corporation run by David Jacobson, Director of the United Hebrew Community of New York. He manages it and others including Machpelah and Acacia Cemetery. He claims there are few burial records for Mokom Sholom.
         According to incorporation papers, the Free Burial Fund Society of Congregation Darech Amuno provided burial for all the Jewish poor of New York City from April 1866 until at least January 1901. Using a low figure of 50 adult graves a year (The 1881 figure is 140 adults and 47 children but this is after the large scale immigration began.) equals 750 adult graves from 1866 to May, 1881. The United Hebrew Charities (no connection to Jacobson's organization) supported Darech Amuno's Free Burial efforts from May 1881 till February 1901. UHC's records show 11,514 burials during that period. The age breakdown from 1881 to 1893 (1892 missing) gives a total of 5,970 burials. They occupied about 2,617 adult size spaces. This equals 51.85% of the total burials from 1881 until February 1901. Therefore, there must have been about 5,000 adult size graves from 1881 till 1901. Darech Amuno must have used the cemetery for their own burials from at least 1865 till at least 1920 (could have been 1910). A low of five adult size graves per year for 55 years gives a total of 275. This added to the 5,750 above equals about 6,000 adult size graves. At 12 square feet per grave, this covers 72,000 square feet.
         Today, beginning at Liberty Ave. the back (or front) third of the cemetery is empty except for about 100 gravestones spread over half of this area or about 1.5 acres. Mr. Jacobson says the other half is unused (virgin) land but cannot explain where Darech Amuno's Free Burial area exists. A free burial area would have had few monuments. I, together with other people, remember tombstones in this area of "virgin land." Numerous people even recall a fence separating the third from the rest of the cemetery with many monuments behind the fence. Remnants of that fence remain in the cemetery. The one-third of the cemetery is about 80,000 square feet and is the only area that could be the free burial area of Darech Amuno that served the poor Jews of New York City between 1866 and 1901. Therefore, any burials in this area, unless clearly identifiable as never having been used, would be illegal, immoral, and a desecration to Jewish poor as well as to the whole cemetery and indeed to all the Jews of New York City. Selling a used grave as new is fraudulent. The management as well as the state would be subject to a massive lawsuit if they permitted such a disgrace. This cemetery should be considered filled and must be closed to new burials.
    Statement of Florence Marmor

    UPDATE: Wiener, Julie. "The Cemetery Nobody Wants". The Jewish Week. (UJA-Federation) 18 October 2002. "Bayside Cemetery is in shambles. The Gen-X members of the shul that owns it can't pay for upkeep. Who's responsible now?" Information about Shaare Zedek Synagogue also.

    UPDATE: "clean up a long-neglected Jewish cemetery in Queens later this month. The four-day effort..." SOURCE: "Mormons coming to rescue of rundown Bayside Cemetery. ... Established in the 1840s, Bayside Cemetery is the final resting place for approximately 35,000 Jews. It is located in a working- to middle-class section of Queens, almost an hour's subway ride away from the increasingly gentrified section of the Upper West Side that is home to Shaare Zedek's predominantly 20- and 30-something membership, many of them rabbinical students and young professionals. ... The cemetery has long been plagued by vandals and overgrown weeds. Many of the headstones, even in areas designated for perpetual care, have fallen over and not been repaired. In January, a vandal broke into one of the mausoleums and opened the graves, exposing human remains. ... This spring, City Councilman Joseph Addabbo, who lives just blocks from Bayside Cemetery, offered to help. Addabbo has mobilized Ralph and Leslie Francisco, local funeral home owners, who are in turn recruiting funeral providers to assist with mausoleum and tombstone repair. ... The cleanup effort at Bayside Cemetery (80-35 Pitkin Ave.) took place May 28-30 and June 2. For more information, e-mail Shane Wamsley at or call (801) 446-9092." Julie Wiener. The Jewish Week.

One plaque said Mokom Sholom Cemetery of the Congregation Darech Amuno established 1865 and the other Bayside Cemetery of the Congregation Darech Amuno established 1865. (The plaques have been removed.)
