Honoring Meaningful Lives

Unique Care for Unique People

Just as those entrusted to our care are unique individuals, each resting place is unique with its own feeling and character.

Traditional burial sections may feature works of art, dedicated family gardens, ponds, mature trees, or wide-open spaces.

Some sections of the cemetery are mature featuring full grown trees and shrubbery.  Some sections are newer with saplings and abundant new growth.  Some sections are easily accessible along the exterior ring of the park.  Some sections are peaceful and secluded within the cemetery interior.

For each family, for each need, Shalom Memorial strives to offer the most appropriate option.

Available Options

Shalom Memorial Park cemetery offers traditional burial plots in over 20 different sections of the cemetery.  Within Shalom Memorial Park Cemetery there are sections designated for those of the Jewish Faith and special areas for those Orthodox members of the community.

For interfaith families, Randhill Park Cemetery, the sister cemetery to Shalom Memorial Park, offers meaningful options here on the same cemetery grounds.

Families desiring special places for their families may choose a Private Family Garden.  Each garden is separated from the rest of the burial grounds by evergreen shrubbery.  Many private family gardens feature a granite bench with the family name appearing on a bronze name plate.

Beth She’arim Mausoleum The Return to a Tradition

Shalom Memorial’s Beth She’arim Mausoleum combines ancient tradition with contemporary knowledge and skill.  We have designed a building set into a grassy hillside. Where the greatest attention has been given to every detail.

The Beth She’arim Mausoleum features both full crypts for casketed entombments as well as special niches for cremated remains.

The Manner In Which We Care

There is a quote which I so appreciate offered by Sir William Gladstone, “Show me the manner in which a nation cares for its dead and I will measure with mathematical exactness the tender mercy of its people, their respect for the laws of the land and their loyalty to high ideals.”
