A committee from Nahalat Shalom first visited the La Puerta Natural Burial Grounds in June of 2017. On June 10, 2018, the Jewish Federation dedicated the Jewish cemetery at the La Puerta Natural Burial Ground. Within that, Nahalat Shalom has it's own one-acre section! Rabbi Min Kantrowitz and Cantor Beth Cohen along with members of Nahalat Shalom's Community Klezmer Band, Rikud dancers and Nahalat Shalom members were part of the dedication. Nikkihanna Baptiste volunteered to chair our much needed Cemetery Committee.
