About Mount Lebanon Cemetery
Mount Lebanon Cemetery was founded in 1914 and continues to be managed by one of the founding families.
Our first burial was made May 11, 1915. The Cemetery has over 90,000 interments.
Early land purchasers were benevolent societies, fraternal organizations and synagogues
providing burial benefits for their members. Eventually, individual families and family
circles purchased land directly from the Cemetery. Today, Mount Lebanon Cemetery is the
final resting place for over 240 societies and thousands of individual families. Please
follow the link to see a full listing of all societies, organizations and synagogues
Our first above ground, outdoor Community Mausoleum was constructed in 1982 followed by a smaller garden mausoleum in 1985.
Mount Lebanon Cemetery became the first Jewish cemetery in the five boroughs of New York City to construct
an indoor, public mausoleum when The Sanctuary was built in 1992.
Mount Lebanon Cemetery is a member of the following associations:
- Metropolitan Cemetery Association (MCA)
- New York State Association of Cemeteries (NYSAC)
