The grounds in which our loved ones are buried represent our legacies and memories that families can visit for generations to come.
Selecting Jewish burial property is a deeply personal endeavor guided by factors such as family tradition, location, cost, and personal preference. We understand that every family is different, so we offer a broad range of interment options in both our Simi Valley and Hollywood Hills sections.
This time-honored property consists of single space or double depth spaces available in a variety of beautiful settings.
Companion Estates – These feature two adjacent single spaces along with a pillow block for the surname and a bench. All Companion Estates feature special decorative plantings.
Family Gardens – The utmost in privacy, offering a peaceful and personal space to honor your loved ones. These beautifully landscaped enclosures have between four and twelve internment plots, a private granite bench for meditation, paved walkways, and a pillow block in which to engrave your family name
Custom Estates – These unique offerings can be customized to perfectly fit your unique legacy. Custom estates incorporate beautiful stone walls, lush landscaping, personalized memorials and benches.
We offer stately outdoor wall structures in both of our parks. All wall crypts and mausoleums are available in single or double configurations at various heights.
We understand that many of our families choose to consider ecological values in addition to religious values when making their end-of-life arrangements. In recognition of our families’ desires, Mount Sinai has created our Natural Burial cemetery area, Teva, at our Simi Valley park. If you’re wanting to honor the life of your loved one, or plan in advance for yourself in a manner that reflects the passions and ideals that are important to you or your family, a natural burial may be the right choice.
Located near the Kamenir Chapel, overlooking a protected nature reserve, this beautiful tranquil area is reached by a meandering stone path. Along the path are olive and pine trees, stone walls, and handcrafted wooden benches that create a protected space that envelopes the visitor in shade comfort and beauty.
Natural, or green burials, symbolize the reuniting of our bodies to the earth from which they were created. The use of natural, sustainably sourced containers made of wicker or wood, or a natural fiber shroud are fully biodegradable. There are no concrete vaults or liners placed in the interment space. The Natural area is planted with drought tolerant, native California plants that reflect the hillsides and areas that surround the park. In addition, a special strain of drought tolerant grass and decomposed granite will cover the ground areas.
As part of our land stewardship, graves at Mount Sinai’s natural burial sites are not marked with bronze markers. Instead, a natural engraved stone marker commemorates your loved one, and is included in the purchase of every space in the Natural Burial area.
