New Light Cemetery, Lincolnwood
About New Light Cemetery, Lincolnwood
The New Light Cemetery can accommodate approximately 3,000 graves sites of which 1,700 are now occupied or have been purchased for future use. A potpourri of foliage enhances the cemetery — including artificial vines on the fences, 20 rare Catalpa trees within the cemetery as well as flowers and shrubbery. The New Light cemetery will perpetuate itself, with dignity, far into the future by its continuation of the well-thought-out preparations and its financial security. Future generations will have the opportunity to visit the gravesites of their beloved ancestors in a garden-like serene atmosphere. Unlike several other Jewish cemeteries in the Chicago area who are already bankrupt, dilapidated or deserted, the New Light cemetery’s future is being cared for tenderly and with pride.
