    This cemetery belonged to the Newburgh Chapter of the Workman's Circle, a Jewish fraternal organization, and was turned over to Congregation Agudas Israel of Newburgh about 10 years ago, who maintains it. There have been several internments here in the past few years, usually for members who have family here. We refer to it as the "Workman's Circle Cemetery"
