Hebrew Society of Brotherly Love of South Bend established Jewish cemetery on this site 1859. First Jewish families settling in a new community typically organized a burial society before establishing a formal congregation. Before Civil War era, such organizations helped widely scattered Jews in Indiana maintain Jewish identity and traditions.

Hebrew Society purchased larger tract of land 1883: bodies from original cemetery reinterred at new site 1884: later named Rose Hill cemetery. Many society members were part of migration starting in 1820s of German-speaking Jews seeking civil liberties. During twentieth century Jewish population in area was second or third largest in state.
