Histories file
      Town population 110,000 with 450 Jewish families in 2000. Funeral Home and monument maker: Dietz Memorial Company, 500 La Salle, Waco TX; Phipps Memorial, 1110 La Salle, Waco TX.
      Hebrew Rest Cemetery: 900 South First Street. 254-754-3242. [University Parks Drive or South First Street near Interstate 35] Contact Harold D. Ginsburg about grave locations. Congregations that use this cemetery: Temple Rodef Sholom, 1717 North New Road, Waco TX and Agudath Jacob Congregation, Hillcrest at Lake Shore, Waco TX. The land-marked cemetery has no flower policy. The caretaker has the key: Connell & Co, 825 West 11th, Austin, TX 78701 (512-635-0___)
      The earliest Jewish community dates from 1847 (sojourners) and permanently from 1853. In 1873, sixteen Jewish families and twenty young men lived there. The 1876 Jewish population was 150 out of 8,000 inhabitants. The inactive cemetery was established in 1869 with only five burials in the 1870s. Located on flat land, the cemetery has a sign in English: "Hebrew Rest Cemetery" and is reached by turning directly off a public road. Access is open with permission. A continuous masonry wall and a gate that does not lock surround the two-acre cemetery with no special sections. The oldest gravestone dates from 1869 (July 1869 Bessee Lyans…age 1 year 6 months). The cemetery was enlarged by land purchased in 1893 and 1922. 100-500 granite flat stones with carved relief and sculpted monuments with English, Hebrew, and Sephardic inscriptions exist, with none removed. The present owner is the local Jewish community and used only as a cemetery. The site is visited rarely. The cemetery was vandalized between fifty and 10 years ago. Maintenance in 1965: clearing of vegetation and repair of wall and gate by the local Jewish congregation, non-Jewish individuals, and city authorities. Current care: occasional clearing or cleaning, paid by Hebrew Rest Association. Within the limits of the cemetery is an office. Vandalism, security, weather erosion, and pollution are slight threats. Vegetation is a seasonal problem preventing access. Water drainage is good all year.
