Selecting burial property is an extremely personal choice and your decision may be guided by a number of factors including family tradition, location, cost and personal preference. Mount Sinai offers a broad range of burial and interment options in both of our cemetery properties, so we encourage you to contact us so that we can help guide you through the selection process.
Traditional Ground Burial
Traditional Lawn Spaces
This “traditional” interment choice consists of a single space available in a variety of beautiful settings.
The lawn crypt is cement-lined and consists of one space above the other, located in our garden areas or courts. Pre-crypted spaces offer families an excellent property value.
Companion and Family Estates
Our Companion Estates are especially fitting for couples and feature two side-by-side spaces arranged in front of a wall for semi privacy along with a granite pillow block for the family name. All of our Companion Estates feature special decorative plantings, and are accented by benches to provide a resting space for each of four or five estates.
Our Family Estates are similar to Companion Estates, but feature two double-depth lawn crypts sitting side-by-side, which allows for up to four interments. Additionally, many of our Family Estates feature enhanced styles of pillow blocks.
Our beautiful and distinguished family gardens offer the utmost in privacy where you can honor and cherish your loved ones all together. These beautifully landscaped enclosures offer between four and twelve spaces, a private granite bench for meditation, paved walkways and a pillow block in which to engrave your family name.
Wall Crypts and The Caves of Abraham
Interment within a wall or cave is a tradition that dates to Biblical times. The earliest reference to this type of burial is in Genesis, in the account of Abraham’s acquisition of the caves of Machpelah as a burial site for his beloved wife, Sarah and future generations.
Mount Sinai Memorial Parks and Mortuaries has brought this ancient tradition to the present by offering stately outdoor wall structures in both of our parks. At Mount Sinai Simi Valley, we are developing The Courts of Abraham, our first fully-outdoor wall structure.
The Caves of Abraham were designed in accordance with Halachic (Jewish Law) practice, to echo the burial caves referenced in the Torah. These crypts, which are surrounded by earth from cemeteries around the world, bring together historical practice, family heritage and contemporary purpose in a unique style.
All wall crypts and mausoleums are available in single spaces, side-by-side or front-to-back double configurations at various heights. Click on the images below to see the wall crypt configurations in greater detail.
Mount Sinai is honored to be the sole Jewish cemetery in Los Angeles currently offering families the option of constructing free-standing mausoleum structures.
The act of constructing a Mausoleum for beloved family members represents the ultimate public display of of eternal love and honor. Like mausoleums constructed hundreds of years ago in Israel, India and Europe, our custom mausoleums are designed according to each family's wishes to create a highly personal and meaningful memorial.
Our mausoleums are constructed from imported stone and surrounded by gardens and flowering trees. Additionally, the entire section overlooks a protected public nature reserve which ensures that the stunning surrounding views will never change.
