PAST EVENTS/CONFERENCES:

 

Sunday, November 6
10:30 am

The cemetery is the final resting place of 5,500 patients buried there over the 100 years the hospital existed, mostly forgotten in life and anonymous in death, whose graves are marked only by numbered stones. A separate portion of the cemetery, with an estimated 500 graves, was set aside and consecrated for patients of the Jewish faith.

The Law Center has partnered with the New York State Office of Mental Health to restore the cemetery and assist family members locate the graves of their loved ones. 

For more information, please contact Samuel J. Levine, Professor of Law and Director of the Jewish Law Institute at Touro Law Center.

Professor Samuel Levine contrasted principles of discretion underlying American legal ethic codes with the concept of obligation central to Jewish law and ethics.
