Judean Memorial Gardens is proud of our reputation as "the Jewish Cemetery" for the Washington metropolitan area, located in Montgomery County, Maryland. We've worked hard over the past 37 years to maintain a perpetual resting place that is both beautiful and meaningful.
Judean Memorial Gardens is a cemetery for people of the Jewish Faith. Judean employs flat-to-the-ground bronze memorial markers in sections to create a park like appearance. A separate Upright monument section is also available for families that desire orthodox burials. The upright monument section has a 10-foot aisle at the foot of every grave. This section is currently under expansion and sites can be purchased from Judean Memorial Gardens. Our compassionate, state-licensed, Memorial Counselors are on-call to help you make the right choices for your family.
Memorials such as Ten Commandments by sculptor Phillip Ratner add beauty and meaning to Judean Gardens. Another example is our Holocaust Memorial, also by Mr. Ratner. Every year we have a memorial service on the High Holy Days between Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur to remember the loved ones and the six million Jews that perished in the Holocaust.

Ongoing efforts to improve Judean Memorial Gardens include the planting of trees and gardens, commissioning works of art, and monuments, and major features such as our Memorial Chapel, completed in 2005.
Customer service: we believe our families deserve nothing less than "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 are assured of the finest quality and care ... today and tomorrow.
Orthodox, Conservative and Reform synagogues alike choose Judean Memorial Gardens, for our fair pricing, adherence to Jewish law, Jewish traditions and convenient location in Montgomery County. Currently nine Congregations and a Chavara have sections at Judean Memorial Gardens, and the number is growing.
A special thank you to all who attented this year's High Holidays Service, and especially the officiating clergy who make this special day possible. The "Kever Avot" service is typically held on the Sunday that falls between Rosh Hashanna and Yom Kippur. Please check this page for more information.
