For over 60 years, Mount Sinai has established meaningful connections with the city’s top florists. Our staff is more than happy to help guide you to the right florist to fit your needs. From fresh cut funeral flowers, memorial flowers, or scheduled floral placements, we can assist you in finding the right florist to help honor your loved one at both our Hollywood Hills and Simi Valley parks.

Our caring Memorial Counselors can help guide you and your family on how to talk to your florist of choice about coordinating your casket spray and other funeral floral arrangements.

Mount Sinai Flower Guidelines

Visiting a loved one’s resting place is a deeply meaningful experience. We understand the profound connection that continues beyond a loved one’s passing, and we’re here to help you nurture that bond. Whether you need help with navigation or any other questions, our team is dedicated to ensuring that your visit is a peaceful and reflective experience.

However, in order to keep the park safe, clean, and beautiful for all visitors, we ask that everyone follow a few guidelines:

We Welcome:

  • Fresh Cut Flowers
  • Jerusalem Stones
  • Windmills under 18″ in height
  • American and Israeli Flags (will be removed one week after patriotic/holiday event)
  • A maximum of (3) combined items per gravesite excluding Jerusalem Stones

For Safety Reasons We Cannot Allow:

  • Potted plants of any size
    • Unfortunately pots at a gravesite can inadvertently cause damage to tablets. We offer small lawn vases that can be used for repotting, to ensure that your floral tributes are safe and secure while preserving the integrity of your loved one’s memorial. With this solution, you can honor your loved one without worrying about damage.
  • Artificial flowers
    • Artificial flowers with wire stems may seem harmless, but they can pose a risk to cemetery workers. Those wires can cause cuts and scratches, making the work of maintaining the grounds more difficult and hazardous.
  • Large rocks, shells, and other materials around and/or on top of tablets
  • Placement of any décor items on or around tablets
  • Windchimes or any hanging decorations in trees
  • Glass of any kind in never permitted on the premise.
