Serving Our Community

Centrally located in the city of Fairview, in Bergen County, New Jersey, Mount Moriah Cemetery enters its second century of service to Jewish families throughout the Greater New York-New Jersey Metropolitan region. It has vigilantly safeguarded its sacred mission, thereby earning the coveted reputation as one of the oldest non-profit Jewish cemeteries that has, over the years, eased the distress of thousands of mourners.

We fortunately enjoy a location convenient for visitation, as we are just minutes from the George Washington Bridge and major highways that permit easy access. In addition, public transit provides convenient bus service directly to our Cemetery gate.

Mount Moriah Cemetery is a member of the New Jersey Cemetery Association.
