B’NAI MOSES JEWISH CEMETERY
SWEETLAND TOWNSHIP - SECTION 19
MUSCATINE COUNTY, IOWA


This cemetery was  surveyed  by Emily McGlothlin  of Muscatine on 15 Jul 1998 and resurveyed in 2002 by Eleanor McCleary.


Directions:  From Highway 61 heading Northeast out of Muscatine, make a right turn (south) at the traffic-light onto University Drive.  At next stop sign, turn left on Highway 22, going East.  Take first left on to Solomon Ave.  About one mile, turn left on to Keener Road.  Less than a mile, on your right, you will come to two cemeteries, which are separated by a fence.  The first one is the B’Nai Moses Cemetery.  The second is the Gilbert Family Cemetery.

Introduction by Eleanor McCleary

Named by the Muscatine County Auditor’s Office as the “Jewish Cemetery”, it is referenced as being located in West half of the South East quarter of the South West quarter of Section Nineteen, Township Seventy Seven, North Range One West.  Most death records and newspaper obituaries referred to it as the “B’Nai Moses Cemetery”.

In 1987, Herman Cohn established a Trust Fund to provide the perpetual care of the cemetery grounds,  which is managed by Central State Bank in Muscatine.  In 2002, it was our observation that the grounds were well maintained and there has been a recent effort to repair some storm-damaged stones.  This private cemetery is still accepting burials today.

Muscatine County Record of Land Book 37, pg. 700; a Deed of Bargain and Sale was executed on 12 April 1895 between Jane (Gilbert) Stiles to Hevery Kadeese, (a Jewish Society) in consideration of the sum of $65, a tract of land for use as a cemetery.

“On the 9th of October 1920, in consideration of the sum of $50, land was purchased from Soltwedel Julius, et ux by the Havery Kadeese, A Jewish Society, to be used as an addition to the Cemetery.”
This transaction may be found in Muscatine County Record of Lands Book 64, pg. 447.

From 1890 to the 1970’s, Muscatine had a strong, vibrant, Jewish community.  Then the times changed.  The elders died, families moved away, and the congregation dwindled to the point that the B’Nai Moses Synagogue had to be closed.  Somewhere along the way, burial records of the Jewish Cemetery were lost.

In the fall of 2002, Eleanor McCleary started to recreate the records.  She writes: “Every cemetery has a different personality.”  For the B'Nai Moses Cemetery the challenge was in the Hebrew writing on the gravemarkers.  No one in Muscatine could read it.  The  Tri-City Jewish Center, located in Rock Island, Illinios referred her to Jeff Portman, Rabbi of the Agudas Achim Congregation, 602 E.Washington St., Iowa City, Iowa.  After he spent a couple of hours going over some rubbings, the Rabbi said that he had not had that much fun in ages and agreed to come to Muscatine to interpret all the stones.

On a Thursday in November, when it was a balmy 32 degrees, Eleanor and Rabbi Portman were out there all day.  It was so interesting.  Not only did they find names spelled in Hebrew and Yiddish, but dates of death according to the Hebrew calendar. The warm part of this project was converting the dates, as close as possible, to the Gregorian (Roman) calendar and then typing up all the notes. For some, the Hebrew dates do not match the Roman dates that were carved into the markers. Only differences can be noted.

There is little written information on the history of the Jewish community in Muscatine at Musser Public Library.  However, we found two listings in the card file for audio cassettes of interest regarding local Jewish History.   The Oral History Tapes Collection  was sponsored by the Muscatine County Area Heritage Association. Twenty-nine families were interviewed.  These tapes may be checked out just like books.  The titles available are:

OHT 167 titled Jewish Families in Muscatine and Their Synagogue by Frank & Rose Drucker
OHT 64 titled History of Jewish families in Muscatine narrated by Mrs. Pearlman June 7, 1971.
Copies of the history and burial register of the B’Nai Moses Jewish Cemetery are now on file with the Sweetland Township Trustees, Central State Bank of Muscatine and area libraries.
