Our lovely country cemetery is an integral part of the JCA. In 1979, through the leadership efforts of Normand Berlin, one of the founders of the community, and with support from the first Cemetery Committee, the JCA purchased appropriate land and established a cemetery following the Jewish tradition of providing burial space for all members.
Located in Shutesbury, our cemetery has two sections: a cleared area where cement grave liners are required for burial (see Cemetery Guidelines), and a recently opened forested green burial section which adheres to many green burial standards (see Green Burial Guidelines).
Plots are available for purchase in both sections to members and non-members who agree to adhere to the guidelines, and financial information is available in both documents. We will gladly provide any further information you need, and welcome your inquiries.
