Lima's Jewish Cemetery News Article

A gate at the Shaare Zedek cemetery, just west of Woodlawn Cemetery. Shaare Zedek translates to Gates of Justice. The cemetery was first referred to as simply the Jewish cemetery and the Shaare Zedek name came after the congregation of the same name organized in 1914. There were once both Orthodox and Reform groups in Lima.

The Lima News had an interesting article about our local Jewish cemetery and includes some history of Lima's temples.
