Plots and Monuments
Because we are small volunteer organization we do not provide on-site burial services. All funeral arrangements must be made through a licensed funeral home. The funeral home should contact us when they have the necessary information.
If you are interested in buying a plot please contact us using the form below. Plots are assigned by the association and are not transferrable without contacting us first. Please note that we are no longer accepting new reservations for Sharis Israel or Farband (Waterbury) and Melchi Zedek has limited space available. The cost of the plot is the only expense with association; there are no extra expenses for perpetual care.
In the cemeteries that allow cremated remains a full size plot must be purchased and the burial must be made by a licensed excavator.
Monuments (headstones and footstones) must be contracted with a licensed monument company. Because of size limitations the monument company must contact us in advance to ascertain if the size is suitable. Monuments are not permitted to display non-Jewish religious symbols but can have secular symbols (i.e, Freemason symbol). For military footstones please contact the Department of Veterans Affairs.
Please contact us if you have any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you want to be included on our mailing list and annual fund raiser please fill in the form. Please note that the JCA does not share your contact information with any other organizations.
The Jewish Cemetery Association of Greater Waterbury receives the bulk of its operating capital from donations. Every year, prior to Rosh Hashanah, we send a fund raising letter. If you would like to be included in that drive please fill put out the form above. Alternatively you can make a donation here. Donations to the association are charitable donations.
