Jewish cemetery stones

Martel & Fils takes care of these traditions and offers you Jewish funeral monuments in accordance with your customs.


What are the different Jewish marble works?

As with many religions, the Judaic religion has various currents depending on the beliefs of the person.
Thus, to create a Jewish, Ashkenazi or even Sephardic funerary monument. it’s possible to personalized. These three currents have very different needs and funeral rites.

Indeed, the Israelite marble works are composed of headstones and tombstones. Ashkenazi marble work, on the other hand, includes only the headstone. Sephardic funerary marble work, very common in North Africa, is rectangular and raised.

A tombstone on which is included the full Hebrew name of the deceased as well as their French name is then placed on the tombstone. A funerary element, such as a Star of David, can then complete the ornament of your Jewish tombstone.

In the Jewish tradition, unsealed coffins are used. Indeed, in Judaism, it is important that the body return to dust as soon as possible. Finally, the grave is placed in the Jewish square of the cemetery and lined up in a row.
