Please read this article as it has significant and time sensitive financial information about grave purchase
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. Plot 70 is bordered by two oak trees and cannot be expanded. Once all the graves are sold to our membership, this Kehilla section will not be able to have graves added to it.. 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.
As of this writing (September 17, 2018), there are only 13 graves remaining for purchase.
Please let us know now if you would like to reserve space for a Kehilla grave or if you would like to reserve space in one of the Kehilla graves for cremains.
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). This is the time to buy if you are interested in significant cost savings and know where you would like your body or cremains to be buried.
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.
This is a monumental deepening of our Kehilla community. We invite you to join us.
