As Southern California’s premier Jewish cemetery, Mount Sinai Hollywood Hills, which opened to the public in 1955, has become an iconic landmark recognized for its stunning views, excellent service, awe-inspiring artwork and overall commitment to Jewish tradition. For over 60 years, it has been our privilege to assist families from all sectors of the Los Angeles Jewish community by providing heartfelt comfort, tradition and caring service during the time when it is needed the most.
Adjacent to Griffith Park, the serene landscape of our property is accented by mature trees (all trees planted on the property, including Olive, Acacia and Cypress) are specifically mentioned in the Torah. Our rolling hillsides are further enhanced by the placement of colorful flower beds and dramatic artwork which offers the perfect environment for remembrance and meditation. We are pleased to promote that since 1987 we have used reclaimed/recycled water for all of our landscaping and irrigation in the Hollywood Hills. Our reclaimed water is acquired through the DWP Los Angeles Glendale Water Reclamation Plant, a facility that recycles 20 million gallons of water per day and provides the treated water to nearby golf courses, businesses and cemeteries. Additionally, to further our water conservation efforts, our decorative water features and fountains employ the same recycled water instead of using fresh water.
Today Mount Sinai Hollywood Hills offers a wide variety of interment spaces including traditional ground burial, family gardens and, above-ground wall crypts. We offer traditional individual, companion or tiered ground spaces for individuals, couples or large families. Your Mount Sinai representative can assist you in identifying a property that meets your needs.
