JRC Cemetery

"The Mission of the Judea Reform Cemetery Corporation is to operate and maintain a Jewish cemetery as a final resting place of sanctity, peace, and beauty; to provide services for the Judea Reform Congregation members and others in conjunction with burials; and to do all things that the Corporation is permitted to do by law, not inconsistent with maintaining its tax exempt status."


For our community members who are in mourning, our Judea Reform Community is devoted to being present for each other.  Given the COVID -19 pandemic and the obligation for physical distancing, we are employing new tools we have in order to sustain a meaningful and loving flow of comfort and compassion from the community to you and your family. These are adaptations of Jewish law for this urgent hour. They will be modified as the situation changes. To find out more about how Judea Reform is meeting the needs of pastoral care, burials, funerals, and shiva minyans during this pandemic, please contact us directly (see list of contacts on sidebar).
