Monuments

The placement of a monument and/or footstone can be arranged at any time after burial and traditionally it should be placed before the first anniversary of passing. A minimum six week period will be required to arrange for selection, ordering, engraving and delivery of a monument and/or footstone. Once the monument is ordered, the monument maker will coordinate with Rabbi Woolfson for verification of the Hebrew text and with the cemetery office for scheduling of the monument foundation and the installation.

Please contact Brenda Epstein (ext. 143), Administrative Assistant to Rabbi Scheier once you have made arrangements with the monument maker. She will coordinate the unveiling schedule with both clergy and cemetery staff. Please note that only unveilings scheduled through Brenda will have the monument covered in preparation for the unveiling ceremony.
