About Mount Ararat Cemetery
Mount Ararat Cemetery first opened in 1928, offering a suburban cemetery for the Jewish community. Since this time, it has served as a cornerstone of the community. While it is located in a convenient location, Mt. Ararat Cemetery still provides a peaceful resting place, and a quiet environment for mourners.
Unlike most Jewish cemeteries, which divide burial plots based upon the organization, Mt. Ararat Cemetery is separated into family plots. All Jewish individuals are free to request a plot, and they are not restricted to members of particular organizations.
The staff at Mt. Ararat Cemetery cultivates a reflective and deeply personal atmosphere by taking a proactive approach to ground maintenance. They routinely cut the grass to best display each memorial, and also maintain a decorative garden. These natural features foster a beautiful and natural environment.
Mt. Ararat Cemetery is in Lindenhurst on Farmingdale Road. Take the Southern State Parkway to Exit 33.
The Mt. Ararat Cemetery website has a search engine function, which allows people to easily locate the gravesite of a family member or friend.
Hours of Operation
The office and cemetery grounds are open from 9:00 am- 4:00 pm from Sunday through Friday, and are closed on Saturdays.
Rules & Regulations
- Each family plot is limited to one memorial in order to preserve space.
- Mt. Ararat Cemetery allows only granite memorials.
- Family members and friends that are visiting grave sites may not plant or leave flowers, as this will disrupt grass cutting. Instead, they are encouraged to leave stones on top of the monument, a common Jewish tradition.
