The Cemetery Committee oversees gravesites in various cemeteries in the New York area available for purchase by our members. The Committee offers a simple funeral plan through a cooperating local funeral home, and works with our Rabbi and our Hevra Kadisha to educate PSJC members about Jewish end-of-life values and planning issues.
PSJC offers its members the opportunity to participate in a simple Jewish funeral plan, currently in cooperation with Shomrei HaChomos Chapels in nearby Borough Park. Those who elect to participate in this plan will be able, with one telephone call, to arrange for a traditional Jewish Funeral. Our Hevra Kadisha will assist in any way that it can.
PSJC holds rights to numerous gravesites at New Mount Carmel Cemetery and Beth David Cemetery.
Graves are available at $900 each to PSJC members in good standing and their immediate families.
Please see "Next Steps" for further information
Use of the graves is subject to restrictions required by the cemeteries (for example, only those of the Jewish faith may be buried in the cemeteries).
