Jewish Monument Services and a Bit About Us...

Jewish Monuments Dealer & Builder In Northern, New Jersey

In the event of a friend or family member passing you are left with countless questions. Among these questions are often “how do I correctly honor said person’s life”? Through the ages monuments have proven time and time again that they are a meaningful way of paying respects. By giving your loved one a monument to commemorate his or her life,  you are allowing them a piece of the earth that will last an eternity.

Symbolically by giving them the Jewish monument they are able to live on, not just through our hearts but in the impact they’ve had on friends, family, and the planet. In most cases the funeral and other traditional events are very large gatherings which limit the privacy you have with your loved one. This is why many realize the true value of the Jewish monument afterwards, it allows you a place to physically go “see” your loved one which can be extremely healthy for the body, mind, and soul.

About Jewish Monuments NJ

There are many factors to take into account when choosing a beautiful Jewish monument for your loved one. The first of which would be whether you want to use bronze or granite as the base. Granite can be found in just about any color you have in mind so it will offer you a bit more creativity. Some feel bronze has a more traditional appearance and reflects the style of classic monuments. Unfortunately, bronze with all of its shine does not come in as wide a range of different colors.

You can choose just about anything you like but at the end of the day, please realize that you are honoring your loved one with something completely custom and beautiful. It's a very special thing when you can honor someone's entire life or legacy with stone or another material.

Customizing Your Jewish Mausoleums

Etching

Over the years, hand etching mausoleums for those that have spent their lives practicing Judaism has turned into laser etching. Both are formidable methods of designing a monument. The reason it has become so popular over time is that it gives the surviving parties an opportunity to share an instance or anecdote about the lost loved one. In addition to this you can give a statement about the creation of the monument or mausoleum for future generations to see.

Inscription

Similar to etching, inscriptions are normally a record or a history of the life lived by the individual(s) lost. These types of dedications are commonly found on monuments to the military, within temples, synagogues or for entire families. By recording a short history of the life lived and inscribing it in stone you are giving eternal life to the memories, history, and existence of loved ones.

Sculptures

Sculptures are a powerful aspect of the monument world. One of the most common sculptures made is that of an angel. Angels symbolize innocence, kindness, compassion and most of all beauty. Some choose to have a religious figure sculpted as testament to a loved one’s faith or admiration. Sculptures are made by carving into the granite or other material and creating a three-dimensional design that can be touched and felt with realistic appearance.

Sand Blasting

This is an alternative to etching, by using a flat granite element we can carve any image you like into the structure of the mausoleum. This process will produce a two-dimensional appearance similar to that of a drawing or painting.

Plaques

Plaques will commonly be made from bronze in order to emphasize the text in that particular area. Plaques are usually complimented with some basic information such as the lifespan, and name of the deceased. Following this you may also add additional text such as a story or a fact about them.

Lettering

Custom lettering is one of the most important parts about designing a proper tribute. Lettering refers to the calligraphy, typography, or font of the text etched into the mausoleum. Depending on the style of lettering chosen you have a bit more influence on how you want your loved one remembered. We are capable of inscribing any written language or symbols you have. This could mean anything from Hebrew and Yiddish to Russian or Polish as well as any other language you would like.
