Our cemeteries date back to the early 1900s and represent the various temples, shuls, brotherhoods, organizations, and fraternal clubs of Revere, Chelsea, Everett, and Dorchester. Our large variety of cemeteries cater to all faiths; from the intermarried to the Shomar Shabbas, Orthodox, Conservative, and Reform of our faith. Our main goal, as it has been since 1910, to keep families together, allow them a peaceful, historic, and traditional cemetery to remember the generations that came before them.
From the traditional chapel of the Chevra Thiliam of Boston and Chevra Mishnias of Chelsea Cemetery.
To the modern, interfaith cemetery of Greenview Memorial Park, allowing those out of the faith to be buried with their families, the Fuller Street Cemeteries services all.
The Unveiling Service
Q. Is there any significance to the custom of putting a pebble on the monument when visiting a grave? What is the origin of the custom?
Ans. According to the Bible the first monuments were merely mounds of stones or insides of natural rock caves, as were the graves of Abraham and Sarah. The early Hebrews were nomadic tribes and shepherds and were not skilled in the arts of quarrying and stone carving until their contact with Babylon and Egypt.
It was the custom when passing by a mound of stones marking a grave to deposit one from the vicinity that may have fallen off. This became interpreted as a mark of thoughtfulness and regard for the memory of the person buried. These mounds of heavy rocks served to guard the graves from predatory animals and grave robbers.
