Funeral service


Leslie Caplan chants “El Maleh Rahamim” at the service. An immigrant from Germany who settled in St. Louis, Jacob Weinthal died in 1917 and was cremated. Earlier this year, a distant relative who lives near Boston started a search for Weinthal’s remains. With the help of a few St. Louisans, the remains were recently located at Valhalla Cemetery in North County. Photo: Mike Sherwin
