Welcome to Judean Memorial Gardens
Rabbi Safra addresses our annual service.
Judean Memorial Gardens is proud of our reputation as the Jewish Cemetery for the Washington DC metropolitan area. Established 1975, and located in Montgomery County, Maryland; our steadfast goal remains to provide a beautiful and meaningful perpetual resting place for those of the Jewish faith!
Memorialization
Throughout most of the cemetery, Judean Memorial Gardens requires flush-to-the-ground, bronze memorial markers, in order to maintain a park like appearance. Upright  memorial markers are available in only in Section 10; a special section developed to satisfy Jewish orthodox burial requirements. Currently under expansion, Section Ten features a 10-foot aisle at the foot of every grave. 
Significant works of Art enhance the beauty of Judean Gardens Many works of art
enhance the beauty
and symbolism of
Judean.
Artworks
Memorials such as Ten Commandments by sculptor Phillip Ratner add beauty and meaning to Judean Gardens. Another example is our Holocaust Memorial, also designed by Mr. Ratner. Each year, Judean hosts a special High Holidays memorial service, which occurs on the Sunday that falls between Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur, to remember our loved ones, as well as the six million Jews that perished during the Holocaust. 
Ongoing Service Commitment
Ongoing efforts to improve Judean Memorial Gardens include the planting of new trees and gardens, commissioning works of art, monuments, and other major features such as our Memorial Chapel, completed in 2005. Customer service: we believe our families deserve nothing less than "good old fashioned" customer service: i.e. when you call Judean (during business hours) you will be greeted by a human being - never a computer! At Judean, you and your family will rest assured of the finest quality and care ... today and tomorrow.
