Cemetery -- Burial Plots

Through an affiliated but separate nonprofit corporation, the Shomrei Emunah Cemetery Association, congregation members in good standing have access to affordably priced burial plots for themselves and members of their immediate families at cemeteries not far from Montclair.

Carol Katzman is president of the Cemetery Association.

To inquire about purchasing burial plots or any other questions, members are asked to contact the synagogue office (973) 746-5031.
