Whether you are interested in exploring an integral part of Philadelphia’s Jewish history, delving into your family’s genealogy, or finding a pristine and peaceful resting place for yourself or a loved one, Mt. Sinai stands ready to meet your needs.
One of the oldest Jewish cemeteries still in operation in Philadelphia, Mt. Sinai was established in 1854. Today, it continues in the tradition of the grand cemeteries of the 19th century, boasting mature plantings, stately trees, grand mausoleums, and a historic chapel designed by the prominent Philadelphia architect Frank Furness. Shady walkways, meticulous grounds-keeping, and well-preserved memorials make this a place of beauty, serenity, and grace. Yet Mt. Sinai is only a scant 20 minutes from downtown Philadelphia, and just five minutes off I-95’s Bridge Street exit, convenient to Bucks and Montgomery Counties.
The cemetery accepts Jews of all sects (Reform, Conservative, Orthodox, Reconstructionist, Unaffiliated) as well as non-Jewish spouses/other immediate family members of Jewish lot holders. We also provide an environmentally-friendly approach to interment, and welcome those who have chosen cremation.
