Religious Questions

For burial services held within any Shalom Memorial Park designated section, a recognized rabbi is required.

Jewish tradition calls for burials to be conducted without delay.  In modern parlance, this typically means that most burials occur within two to four days following a passing.

Yes.  Shalom Memorial Park Cemetery is proud to offer the burial of sacred texts as part of our genizah burial program.

Please call the main office at 847-255-3520 to arrange a time to deliver prayer books or sacred texts to the cemetery office for their inclusion in an upcoming genizah burial.

The background of this treatment of sacred texts comes from the Talmud.  In the Talmud it is written that sacred texts should be preserved in a place where they cannot be destroyed.  The common practice is that anything dealing with sacred texts should be placed in a genizah, either at the synagogue or at home, rather than simply thrown out.  From time to time, this collection of sacred texts is to be buried in a Jewish Cemetery.

It is a tradition to place an object at the gravesite of a loved one and we encourage this practice.  However, because bronze memorials can be scratched or damaged when rocks are placed, please do not place stones on any bronze memorial.  Instead, please visit the office for a bronze safe remembrance token to be used instead of a scratching rock.

Burial Questions
