New Mt. Sinai Cemetery, founded in 1850, is the oldest existing Jewish cemetery in St. Louis and one of the oldest existing Jewish cemeteries west of the Mississippi River. Its historical significance and beautifully maintained grounds make it a popular place to visit.

You may print your tour narrative and detailed map to your right or stop by the cemetery office Monday through Friday from 9am to 4pm. Visitors can walk or drive to any or all of the 43 stops including the Community Mausoleum, the Veterans Memorial Garden and Monument, the original Chapel (1905), the House of Comfort (1916), and the burial sites of some of the most historically significant members of the St. Louis community.
