Our Jewish and Interfaith Cemetery

Congregation Shaara Tfille and Saratoga Jewish Community Center of Saratoga Springs Cemetery

Cemetery

Congregation Shaara Tfille is committed to assisting its members with all life-cycle events, including funerals. We maintain, through the tireless efforts of our Cemetery Committee, the only Jewish cemetery in the City of Saratoga Springs. For over ninety years, our synagogue has continuously provided Kosher funerals for its members, from our beginnings as an Orthodox congregation. Over a half-century ago Congregation Shaara Tfille/The Saratoga Springs Jewish Community Center Cemetery was founded to provide for halachic burial for our Conservative congregation.

Plots in the original section of the cemetery are for Jewish burials only. In 2010, additional land was acquired to provide for future needs of the congregation. The new cemetery provides consecrated interfaith plots available to our members and their partners. These plots are clearly separated from the Jewish section which has been consecrated by a Rabbi.

The Cemetery Committee works closely with the Saratoga Springs Jewish Burial Society and local funeral homes to provide Congregation members with a funeral that is conducted in accordance with all halachic and Conservative guidelines, including tahara and shemira. Congregation Shaara Tfille’s Rabbi, Chair of the Cemetery Committee and Office Administrator, once informed that a member has passed away, coordinate the requested date and time of the funeral. The Rabbi’s decision is final on all matters related to religious, burial and cemetery practices.
