Temple Israel Cemetery is located at 42 and Redick Street in Omaha; it was known as Pleasant Hill Jewish Cemetery in the old days. It comprises these three cemeteries: Temple Israel, B'Nai Jacob and B'Nai Sholem. 

The cemetery was refurbished around 1999 and they built a brand new front gate, along with renaming it; it looks updated and beautiful now. The cemetery meanders all over a very steep hillside and is visually striking. 

Emil Brandeis, the only Omahan to go down on the Titanic on April 15, 1912 is buried in Temple Israel.
