Jewish Cemetery Wins International Design Prize

A Jewish cemetery in England won a prestigious international prize for design this week, the Jewish Chronicle reported.

The New Bushey Cemeterey, in a northwestern suburb of London, claimed the prize for best religious architecture at the World Architecture Festival. The firm behind the cemetery, Waugh Thistleton, was noted for its use of natural materials.

“The Bushey New Cemetery has a beauty and a dignity that provides a fitting resting place for our community’s loved ones,” said Michael Goldstein, the president of United Synagogues. “We are delighted that Waugh Thistleton has received this recognition for the wonderful work they have done.”

The $10.5 million cemetery was completed this year.
