RS at Laurel Hill Cemetery East Gravesite Purchase Opportunity

In early 2018, a group of Rodeph Shalom congregants combined to pursue an opportunity at Laurel Hill Cemetery East on Kelly Drive in Philadelphia. The purpose was to identify a section of this historic non-sectarian cemetery for use by RS members and families as a final resting place. Laurel Hill temporarily set aside a section of approximately 45 gravesites for individual purchase directly from Laurel Hill by those wishing to be surrounded by other members of the RS community in perpetuity. The agreement with Laurel Hill allowed Laurel Hill to offer to others any unsold gravesites in the section after RS congregants and their friends and loved ones had sufficient opportunity to consider a purchase. To date, Laurel Hill has sold 38 of these gravesites to RS-affiliated individuals. The seven that remain will be available to the RS community for only a short time longer. We invite you to consider this opportunity.

Each plot can hold one or two caskets (stacked), four urns for cremains, or a combination of two caskets and two urns. The current purchase price per grave is $4, 600, with an additional charge for opening the grave at the time of burial. Perpetual care is included.
