Located within the Chatham Rural Cemetery in Chatham, New York, the Chatham Jewish Cemetery, which is overseen by our synagogueis styled as a memorial park with flat markers set in a natural park-like setting. This is consistent with our goal to rest lightly on the land and in keeping with our strong belief in egalitarian principles.

Jewish burial practice has been quintessentially “green” for thousands of years. Jewish burial, like green burial, advocates the return to the earth as naturally as possible, avoiding embalmment and using biodegradable materials.

Because of state-mandated restrictions, only members of The Chatham Synagogue Netivot Torah may purchase lots within the Jewish Section of the Chatham Rural Cemetery. However, many individuals, recognizing the beauty and affordability of our cemetery, have chosen to join the Synagogue for that express purpose and have found other benefits of membership in the process. In life and in death, we are a supportive and close community.

To make a donation to the Cemetery Fund, go to our Donations page and select "The Chatham Jewish Cemetery Capital Fund" as the Dedication type.
