“DUST ART THOUGH AND UNTO THE DUST MUST THOU RETURN”

– KAVOD HAMET
(”The Honor Given To The Departed”)

It is a fundamental principle of Jewish law and tradition to accord honor and dignity to the departed in making arrangements for his/her funeral and burial. This mitzvah applies to members of the community if the deceased has no family to tend to burial. How much more so is it incumbent upon loved ones to do everything in their power to make certain that all funeral and burial arrangements are made keeping in mind the honor to the deceased.

The Memorial Park is open 8:00 A.M. until one hour before sunset.  

We are closed on Shabbat and on all major Jewish holidays and open on all recognized American civil/legal holidays.  All burials must be in accordance with Traditional Jewish law.
