An iconic landmark in the Hollywood Hills
Serving Los Angeles for 60 years, Mount Sinai Hollywood Hills offers a serene Jewish cemetery sanctuary accented by colorful gardens and elegant architecture.
On Sunday, September 24th, we will hold our 63rd annual Kever Avot Community Memorial service at both of our parks in the Hollywood Hills and Simi Valley.
If you are not familiar with the ancient custom of Kever Avot, it is the tradition of visiting the graves of parents and loved ones each year, between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. Please join with us on Sunday, September 24th as we pray together, support one another and honor the memory of those who have passed. Whether your loved ones are buried with us or far away, all are welcome.
Our sacred yet casual Kever Avot service begins with the sound of the Shofar and ends with the recitation of the Kaddish. For your convenience, we hold services at each of our memorial parks beginning with the 10:00 am morning service at Mount Sinai Hollywood Hills followed by an afternoon service which will begin at 1:00 PM at Mount Sinai Simi Valley.
Both services will be led by Rabbi Nicole Guzik and Cantor Marcus Feldman from Sinai Temple, and in Simi Valley they will be joined by Cantor Lisa Peicot of Sinai Temple. Our services will be accompanied by Sinai Temple Choir, under the direction of Aryell Cohen, at Mount Sinai Hollywood Hills and the AJU Choir, under the direction of Dr. Noreen Green at Mount Simi Valley.

From our Mount Sinai Family to yours, L'Shana Tova Tikatevu!
Best wishes for a sweet, healthy and peaceful New Year.
