Har Jehuda Cemetery - Upper Darby, Pennsylvania
8400 Lansdowne Avenue
Upper Darby, PA 19082
This is a big place and it is packed with graves and tall headstones.
The latest Form 990 available through ProPublica is for the year 2013, which is odd. Where is 2014 and 2015?
I'm not a CPA, but it looks like their main investment is an art monument, which their 2013 Form 990 page 3 of Schedule D lists at a cost of $130,315. And they have something else listed in the same section of Schedule D, an item referred to as: "Kinneret Aleph," which the form says had a cost of $5500. Also, they are showing that they are more than $3 million in the red with $3,808,440 owed to brokers. This confuses and concerns me. Well established cemetery. Very old. Tons of graves. (?)
This filing shows they have no endowment.
Part IV, of Form 990, #10, asks:
Did the organization, directly or through a related organization, hold assets in term, permanent, or quasi-endowments?
They checked the NO box.
UPDATE: The 2016 Form 990 is out. And the "art monument" now has the sum $351,617 next to it. The form asks method of valuation. It's either cost or end of year market value. They list this sum as "cost."
I am confused. Where is the perpetual care money?
