The Jewish Cemetery at River View was created as a cooperative effort between three congregations: Shir Tikvah, P’nai Or of Portland, and Kol Shalom Community of Humanistic Judaism. Founded to serve all Jews, this consecrated cemetery is secluded in a corner of Portland’s best-maintained non-profit burial ground.
Open to all Jews, regardless of affiliation, the Jewish Cemetery at River View allows burial of a non-Jewish spouse or partner and burial of a same-sex spouse or partner. The Cemetery also offers cremation plots and a Wall of Remembrance for the names of those who are buried elsewhere.
For more information about purchasing a plot or name place on the Wall of Remembrance, contact a volunteer Cemetery Committee Member.
The River View Cemetery is located at 0300 SW Taylors Ferry Road, Portland, OR 97219 (503-246-4251)
