Title

"Cemetery," Low Pollock Memorial Park, 1951 - 1953, Beth Israel Cemetery Committee

Description

Contains the dedication of the Jewish cemetery and memorial park to Lou Pollock, a man who was instrumental in its foundation. Many Jews came to Asheville for health reasons, and died there without any money to be buried. As burial is very important for the Jews, they formed a cemetery committee that buries any Jew of the congregation who dies, regardless of means.
