This was taken outside the gates of the Mikveh Israel Cemetery. There are bunch of Eggplants tied tighter with red yarn . A bevy of American coins were under each one.

Typically eggplants at a cemetery are an offering to the spirit Oya.

Is there a Jewish meaning/ritual for this, as well? Or is this an attempt at syncretism?
