Mt. Sinai provides monuments and other memorial options which honor and respect Jewish customs and family needs.
The type of headstone or monument, the inscription and a phrase of tribute are all choices that can make a memorial unique and personal. In Jewish tradition, the inscription will include the English and Hebrew name of the deceased. Granite headstones are available in three styles and many colors to complement Mt. Sinai’s desert landscape.
A variety of benches are available as a lasting tribute and additional memorial to traditional gravesites. A bench is included in the semi-private and private estates. The bench can also be inscribed.
A Yahrzeit light is a memorial feature that will honor and memorialize your loved one. The Yahrzeit light holds a memorial candle and will be lit, as is the custom, on the eve of the deceased’s Yahrzeit date by Mt. Sinai.

Hand-washing stations provide a unique and widely seen opportunity for a living memorial.
