At the conclusion of Shloshim, the traditional 30-day period of mourning, a Mount Sinai representative will contact the family to help them create their memorial tablet (matzevah) which represents a permanent symbol of remembrance. Our staff will assist you every step of the way to design a personalized tablet, in either Granite or Bronze, that offers meaningful and personal expression.
Steps to Creating a Memorial Tablet
- Work with your Mount Sinai representative to decide which size and style memorial tablet will suit your needs.
- Determine the material and style of the tablet
a. BRONZE – Traditional and classic, our Bronze Memorial Tablets convey a message of timeless elegance and have been used to mark graves at Mount Sinai Memorial Parks and Mortuaries since we opened in 1955. Every bronze Memorial Tablet is hand-poured using a sand-casting method to shape the metal.b. GRANITE – Sophisticated and refined, Granite Memorial Tablets are quickly gaining popularity because they enable families to create a deeply personal work of art to honor the memory of their loved ones.
- Customize the inscription and layout of the tablet. The inscription can include Hebrew, English, Russian, Farsi or any other language of your choice.
