Jewish Monuments

Menucha Monuments supplies and builds monuments in many Jewish Cemetery sections in Sydney including Rookwood Cemetery, Macquarie Park, Botany, Woronora, Frenchs Forest, Moss Vale and Noraville Cemeteries.


Erecting a monument, or tombstone, is an ancient Jewish tradition of great significance established in Biblical times. The patriarch Jacob initiated this custom when he built a monument for his beloved wife Rachel, in order that the Children of Israel would be able to identify and pray at her resting place on their way into exile after the destruction of the Temple. According to Jewish belief, there is a unique potency to prayers that are offered at the site of a burial. Building a monument in the Jewish faith is also part of honouring the deceased and brings peace to the soul of the departed.
