The following comes from information I received from Historian, Helen
Boots and excerpts from Rural Spokane County Cemeteries, Vol. 1, pub.
1961 by EWGS.
Ahalath Israel Cemetery was a Jewish cemetery which was dedicated
Apr 23, 1914 and recorded in the Spokane County records in Plat Book Q,
page 52. The articles filed at that time were signed by: Louis A. Joffe,
S. Goldberg, N. Goodman, A. Taitch, President; Sam Fishbach, Vice-president
and D. Markowitz, Secretary.
The area of this old cemetery is Northwest of the overpass of Exit
276 of the I-90 freeway through Spokane, WA. This cemetery was closed
after just a few burials were made. That was because of the solid rock
encountered when digging graves. Reportedly all burials were removed
at that time and it is believed they were moved to Mt. Nebo Cemetery,
which is the present Jewish cemetery in Spokane. No records have been
found to exist by either Spokane county or the Jewish community.
