Cemeteries

Rinat offers its members access to graves in Bergen County at highly competitive rates. Our cemetery is located in Paramus, NJ. Graves can be purchased when the need arises, or can be reserved on a pre-need basis. The following rules and procedures have been adopted as of March 2016 governing the purchase of graves. If you are interested in reserving a grave on a pre-need basis please complete the form below.

Reservations/Refunds:

  • To purchase graves, you must be a full member of Rinat, in good standing.
  • No graves will to be sold to family members who are not full members of the shul in good standing, other than members’ parents and children.
  • Affiliate members are not entitled to purchase graves.
  • Reservation or payment for a grave only entitles the member to be buried in the Rinat cemetery; it does not guarantee a specific grave location. The Chevra reserves the right to change plot locations until one family member has been buried.
  • Graves for unmarried children can be bought at the time of need, at the member price, but not sold/reserved in advance (as, in the vast majority of cases, these are not used).
  • Graves are not transferrable.
  • Members have the right to return plots for a refund of 65% of the amount originally paid.
  • Graves that are not used return to possession of the Rinat Chevra (without any refund).

Payment:

  • Graves must be paid for at the time of reservation. Any graves that have been reserved and not been paid for in full within 30 days will revert to the Chevra’s possession.

Cost:

  • The cost of graves for members is $750.
  • The cost of graves for parents of members is $1,500.
