Congregation Sherith Israel established its cemetery in 1850 as an essential part of the Jewish community in San Francisco. First
located in Pacific Heights and then Dolores Park, it moved in 1889 to its present location in Colma. It has served our synagogue from its inception and is woven into the fabric of our
city’s history with many notables from the Gold Rush era to the present. You can find further background on the Hills of Eternity website at www.jcemsf.org (including the location of Wyatt
Earp’s gravesite).
