We Created Holy Ground: Photo Gallery

On March 17, 2019 a group of Kehilla congregants, family, and friends practiced an
established ritual that for many Jews does not occur in their lifetime. We
consecrated a Jewish burial site. This momentous event occurred at Plot 70 in
Mountain View Cemetery in Oakland, CA. where 45 graves have been purchased by
members and two by Kehilla. We circled our perimeter seven times, praying and
pausing, chanting and reciting, offering tzedakah, and confirming our intent to make
sacred this space where we will bury our dead.
