ABOUT US


Mount Sinai – The Jewish Funeral Home serving all Southern California

Inside Kamenir ChapelMount Sinai Memorial Parks and Mortuaries maintains its 60+ year tradition of honoring the deceased and serving the living as a Jewish Funeral Home for all of Southern California.  Since 1965, we have been wholly owned by Sinai Temple of Los Angeles which dedicates its cemetery and mortuary services to the entire Jewish community of Los Angeles.

Everyday we provide Jewish funeral home, mortuary and cemetery services to our client families with all of the respect and tradition dictated by our Jewish heritage performed in the same caring manner which we would extend to our own loved ones.

Mount Sinai supports the full spectrum of Jewish ritual observances related to death and mourning, and we are  sensitive to the needs and requests of all we serve. For immediate assistance, we have staff available on-site to answer calls 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Today, in many ways, Mount Sinai functions as a Chevra Kadisha for the entire Los Angeles Jewish community by offering the traditional Jewish observances of Taharah (Ritual Washing) and Sh’mira (Watching over the Deceased and reciting Psalms).  Each and every day, our staff works diligently proffer the highest degree of Kovod Hames  כבוד המת (Respect for the Deceased).  In addition, to offer assistance and comfort to our most traditional families, we will always help facilitate communications with various local Chevra Kadisha volunteer organizations throughout Los Angeles.

Our two cemeteries, located in Simi Valley and the Hollywood Hills, offer a variety of burial choices including lawn spaces, wall crypts and family gardens.  Because we own over 150 acres of undeveloped land in Simi Valley, we are prepared to meet the needs of the Southern California Jewish community for the next two hundred years.

Entrance Gate to Mount Sinai Hollywood Hills

The Mount Sinai Hollywood Hills entrance gate is inscribed with the Hebrew words Bet ha-Chayyim" which translates to "House of the Living"

Inscribed on the front gates of Mount Sinai Hollywood Hills, you will see the Hebrew words "Bet ha-Chayyim".  This traditional, yet paradoxical, nomenclature is often used to identify Jewish cemeteries because the Talmud teaches us that the soul is eternal and does not die and because a beautiful and serene cemetery primarily exists to offer comfort to mourners and others who visit.
Providing for Jewish memorialization and burial are among the most important commitments that a Jewish community makes to its members.  That is our commitment to you.
Our legacy is guided by Jewish practice and we abide by the tenet that it is our responsibility to provide a broad array of options while recognizing the ever-changing dynamics of today's blended families. We are also sensitive to language and traditions of every segment of our community and we have staff available to speak to you in Hebrew, Russian, Farsi, Yiddish, Spanish and of course, English. If we can be of assistance to you whether at time of need or as you plan for the future, please contact us at 1-800-600-0076.
