Cemetery

The loss of a loved one is always an emotional time. Sometimes those moments are even more challenging when, in addition to bearing the loss, the family is put in the position of scrambling to make decisions about end-of-life issues. Pre-purchasing cemetery plots is one of the most thoughtful and considerate gifts you can give to your loved ones, because it relieves them of making one of those difficult decisions within a few short hours of their loved one’s death. It also relieves family members of one of the financial burdens associated with one’s final arrangements and ensures that family members may be buried next to each other.

In an effort to serve our congregational family, Congregation B’nai Israel offers to our congregants cemetery plots for purchase. These plots are located in a peaceful and beautiful section of Beth Israel Cemetery, a Jewish cemetery located in Woodbridge, NJ, and are reserved for our community and their extended family members.

Congregation B’nai Israel is pleased to be able to offer members plots in one section that are marked by a plaque flush to the ground, or in an adjacent section where traditional headstones may be erected. (Please note that we do not sell the grave markers or headstones themselves). The plots are priced well below the market prices charged directly by the cemetery. The current pricing is $1275 for a plot that may be marked with a ground-level plaque and $1450 for plots in the section where headstones may be placed.
