Description

Despite being one of the most beautiful and well-maintained cemetery in the Old San Antonio City Cemeteries Historic District, we were unable to gather much information on this burying ground or the historic burials that took place here. Agudas Achim was established in 1885 by Rabbi Samuel D. Phillips and expanded by one acre in 1890. Several important rabbis are interred here as well as well-known Jewish community members. Hebrew Dates in Cemeteries – The Jewish calendar is very different from the Julian or civil calendar. There is a very complicated formula for turning Hebrew numerals into civil. On the gate of Agudas Achim the founding date in Hebrew is 5643. This translates into 1885.
