Day 1167

A canvas for visitors

March 11th, 2015

Here at United Hebrew Cemetery, there's a large section of graves covered with horizontal slabs of granite, which happen to provide an ideal surface for the accumulation of stones left behind by visitors (a Jewish custom). For whatever reason, this cemetery sports a much wider variety of stones, including some flattened glass marbles, than I've seen elsewhere.

United Hebrew Cemetery was the first cemetery I visited on this walk, all the way back on Day 1. It's had quite a bit more money embezzled from its coffers since then!
