The Congregation supplies a plot in the Shaarei Zedek cemetery free of charge to all members in good standing. Burial for those who are not members of the Congregation but live in Saint John and the surrounding area will be assessed a fee for burial and plot to be determined by the Congregation Board.
The Congregation has arranged a base price for all Jewish funerals. This includes the traditional wooden casket, the traditional body clothing, the hearse transfer of the remains to Brenans and from the Funeral home to the Shaarei Zedek Cemetery.
Fees charged by Fernhill Cemetery for opening and closing of the grave are paid by the Congregation and passed on to the family in Shaarei Zedek’s billing for funeral service. All funerals are charged a fee of $2500.00 to go into the Cemetery Fund to maintain our Cemetery in the future.
