The process has begun to secure a Kehilla congregational section in lovely Mountain View Cemetery in Oakland. This is a three phase process contingent upon Kehilla members buying a minimum of 30 graves within the first year. At this time, more than 30 members have already indicated a desire to buy during the first phase at the introductory offer price. There are 48 graves total; Kehilla is purchasing two graves to hold a total of ten separate cremains. This leaves 46 graves available for individual members.
Phase One: Through October 31, 2018, there is a price reduction for our members ranging from $1980.00 to $2970.00 off per grave (depending on grave location). Some members have already bought graves with many more having already made a commitment to purchase and are about to do so. At the time of this writing, there are still graves available to buy at the introductory prices.
Phase Two begins Nov. 1, 2018 and lasts through July 31, 2019. If there are graves left to purchase within this time period, members will still be able to buy graves to be with the Kehilla community, at currently set and known prices (not the reduced, introductory prices).
Phase Three starts if there are still graves left and would begin August 1, 2019. At this time, graves left to purchase in the Kehilla section will be sold at the then prevailing market rate. This last phase can last up to five years.
This area, known as Plot 70, will be consecrated as a Jewish cemetery.
Plot 70 is a specific area bordered by two oak trees. It cannot be expanded. Once all 48 graves are sold to our membership, this Kehilla section will no longer be able to have more graves added to it.
This is a monumental deepening of our Kehilla community. We invite you to join us.
