Chesed Shel Emeth Burial Society serves the St. Louis Jewish community and fulfills a sacred trust to honor the memories of those who rest within our cemetery grounds. We are committed to maintaining, restoring and enhancing our cemetery grounds and facilities and to provide a safe, secure, serene setting for prayer and reflection. We contribute to community efforts to ensure that the indigent are provided with a proper Jewish burial. We further preserve our sites, graves, monuments and archives for the benefit of future generations and to facilitate educational, historical, and genealogical opportunities and inquiries.
Chesed Shel Emeth Society has been serving the St. Louis Jewish community for over 130 years, emphasizing traditional Jewish integrity, reverence and respect. It operates in accordance with Jewish tradition as is telling from its name: Chesed (loving-kindness) and Emeth (Torah Truth and integrity). This has been a hallmark of Chesed Shel Emeth since its founding.
Chesed Shel Emeth Society also offers Shaimos, the proper disposal of holy objects.

Wednesday, May 10this GIVE STL DAY.
It is Chesed Shel Emeth Society’s 135th anniversary!
135 years of caring for the needs of our community. 135 years of preserving our heritage.
As our community continues to evolve, so do our cemeteries. Our oldest cemetery at our University City location is showing its age and will be getting some much needed TLC.
This year we want to begin the complex and important project of leveling and/or replacing failing sidewalks. This expensive venture will also involve tree removal and moving monuments to prevent damage.
Our sidewalks have become hazardous and require attention. Your vital contribution on GiveSTLDaywill allow us to better preserve our grounds.
Of course we have other opportunities to give. You can choose to help us with indigent burial, burying genizah (holy objects), and/or placing markers on the graves of children and infants.
