Jewish Headstones and Inscriptions
A burial is the only practice for the departed in Judaism, so creating an appropriate matzevah is a crucial step in the memorial and mourning process.
Menucha Monuments are accustomed to Jewish headstones, the Jewish beliefs and practices around death, burial and memorialisation, and can provide the necessary support during this challenging time to produce the most meaningful, beautiful and cherished reminder of your lost loved one.
Menucha Monuments services many Jewish Cemetery Sections in Sydney including Rookwood Cemetery, which offers the largest Jewish cemetery section in Sydney, as well as Macquarie Park, Botany, Woronora, Frenchs Forest, Moss Vale and Noraville Cemeteries.
The gravestone design is an important part of our process, and the Jewish cemetery stones used are often dependent on the area of lawn or section available. We can advise on specific cemetery rules for the various sections.
We can advise about visiting of the grave site and leaving a pebble as a token of respect
according to Jewish tradition. We can also advise about the timing and customs
of the Consecration or unveiling
Menucha Monuments is well versed in the requirements of Jewish cemetery monuments and inscriptions, which often combine both Hebrew and English script, along with various symbols.
Jewish Bereavement Customs
We can advise about visiting of the grave site and leaving a pebble as a token of respect according to Jewish tradition. We can also advise about the timing and customs of the Consecration or unveiling. Most families hold a consecration for the monument one year after passing, although there are various customs as to when this should be held. We can also provide Jewish double headstones if required.
