CAI cemetery association


In an effort to serve our congregational family, our Cemetery Association has space set aside in nearby cemeteries for purchase. Often, it becomes necessary to act quickly in finding a permanent resting place for our loved ones at a most difficult and stressful time. Family plots are available. We are happy to work out extended payment plans. Should your family relocate outside of our area, the association will repurchase your plots at any time, for any reason.

Our plots are in the:

  •   Menorah Section of the East Ridgelawn Cemetery

  •   King Solomon Memorial Park Section of West Ridgelawn Cemetery, Clifton

  •   New Mount Zion Section of Hillside Cemetery, Lyndhurst (All plots sold)

Serving Congregation Agudath Israel for Nine Decades

For information regarding the purchase of plots, please contact Steve Eisen or Mel Berkowitz.

Mel Berkowitz is the initial contact for all burial arrangements.
