Mount Lebanon Cemetery
78-00 Myrtle Ave, Glendale, NY 11385 – (718) 821-0200
A cemetery so acclaimed people are dying to get in – literally. Mount Lebanon Cemetery, a Jewish cemetery located in Glendale, has been serving the Jewish communities of Brooklyn, Queens, Manhattan and Long Island for more than a century. It offers single and companion gravesites as well as family plots on its beautifully-landscaped grounds. In recent years, the borough’s best cemetery has accommodated a growing demand for above-ground burial with three community mausoleums on site, including The Sanctuary – the city’s first indoor Jewish community mausoleum. Founded in 1914, Mount Lebanon Cemetery currently has over 90,000 interments, and is still run by members of its founding family.
