Wall Crypts and The Caves of Abraham

 

Wall Crypts

Mount Sinai Memorial Parks and Mortuaries offering stately outdoor wall structures in both of our parks.  At Mount Sinai Simi Valley, we have recently completed construction on The Courts of Abraham, our first fully-outdoor wall structure.

All wall crypts and mausoleums are available in single spaces, side-by-side or front-to-back double configurations at various heights.

 

The Caves of Abraham

Interment within a 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.

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.

Family Mausoleums and Sarcophagi

Family Mausoleums

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 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 to provide a personal and meaningful memorial.

Our mausoleums are constructed from imported stone and surrounded by gardens and flowering trees.  The entire section overlooks a protected public nature reserve which ensures that the stunning surrounding views will never change.

Family Sarcophagi

Both sarcophagus structures surround magnificent granite mosaics designed by the artists of Laurie Gross Studios which depict well known scenes from Abraham and Sarah's lives as described in the Torah.
