The Beth Sholom B'nai Israel Memorial Park committee was initially established to manage and administrate the Beth Sholom Memorial Park at the request of the town of Manchester, which owns and controls the cemetery lands set aside to inter town residents. The town, appreciating the needs of its Jewish residents, established a separate section of the East Cemetery specifically designed for those residents. The synagogue leaders agreed to administer to the organization of the burial site distribution if the town agreed to allow the burial of any Beth Sholom B'nai Israel member who had not resided in Manchester during their lives. The agreement specifies that any Jewish resident of Manchester can arrange burial in the Memorial Park, and that any Beth Sholom B'nai Israel member who resided within a 25-mile radius of Manchester at the time they purchased the burial site deed can also be interred there.
The committee acts to collect the fees used to reimburse the Town for the perpetual care of the gravesites after interment, as well as ordering and placing the grave maker plaques. Beth Sholom B'nai Israel's Board of Directors sets the fees, taking into consideation the recommendations of the committee. The committee members act as the go between for the family and the Town of Manchester's Cemetery Department once final arrangements are needed.
