Beautiful Cemetery Plots Are Available

A Jewish Tradition

Did you know that it is an ancient Jewish custom to purchase a gravesite during one’s lifetime and to own it outright prior to burial? The Bible states explicitly that Abraham bought a grave for Sarah. Likewise, Joseph was buried in the family plot that his father Jacob had acquired in the city of Shechem.

In honoring this tradition Hebrew Tabernacle owns a group of burial plots at the Cedar Park Cemetery in Paramus, NJ, which is only a short drive from our neighborhood. Our synagogue can make these available to members (at a reduced price of $2,400), as well as to non-members ($3,000).
