Our cemetery is located in the area of town known as West Augustine, just near the historic African-American cemeteries of Pinehurst and San Sabastian. The site was chosen due to the fact that two Jewish peddlers named Gerson Posnansky and Samuel Snyder had been killed by Indians in 1840 and 1846, respectively. They are both buried at this site. Subsequent to the establishment of the congregation, this property was purchased and became the site of the oldest Jewish cemetery in the state of Florida.
