Mount Nebo Cemetery

195 Totowa Rd, Totowa, NJ


Jewish tradition holds that a cemetery is an even holier place than a synagogue.  With that in mind, the early benefactors of Barnert Temple established Mount Nebo Cemetery in 1867, soon after the temple’s founding.

Named after the site of Moses’ death, Mount Nebo Cemetery occupies 22 acres of land.  Diverse elements of nature, including the surrounding woods, wildlife and a stream that traverses the property, provide a uniquely serene and rustic setting for sacred burial ground.  A stroll through the cemetery marks a journey through our synagogue’s rich history, as it is the final resting place of Barnert Temple’s namesakes, Nathan and Miriam Barnert, as well as clergy, lay leaders and generations of congregants.  Mount Nebo is also honored to serve many Jewish non-members and their families.    

The cemetery is open Sunday through Friday from 8 am to 5 pm every day except for Jewish holidays.  It is closed on Saturday.

If you need immediate assistance due to a death in the family, you may contact the Temple office at (201) 848-1800.
