Paying respects

At the time of your greatest need, the Beth Sholom community is there to support you. Your grief is shared by us all, and everything is done to comfort you and yours.

We rely on our Jewish traditions to help you make arrangements for a funeral, burial, and shiva. We provide the grieving family with shiva meals, daily minyans, and companionship. Above all, Rabbi Ilan's compassionate counsel guides families during this most difficult times.

We will help make arrangements for a funeral, which can be held in our sanctuary or at Beth Sholom Memorial Gardens. Beth Sholom has an active chevra kadisha to properly honor the deceased by preparing and guarding the body before burial.

At your time of need, Rabbi Ilan is ready to help. Reach him instantly on the Lifecycle Emergency Hotline: (901) 800-9636.

   

Beth Sholom Gardens: An External Resting Place  

Our cemetery, Beth Sholom Memorial Gardens, was consecrated September 18, 1966 and continues to serve the needs of our synagogue. A makom kodesh - a holy place - the beautifully maintained Gardens are located off Interstate 40 at Appling Road.The cemetery is a locked and gated facility that is wheelchair accessible. The gate code is available by calling the synagogue office (683-3591). Situated on 10 acres, the Gardens have a covered pavilion that comfortably seats 100 guests for services. The grounds and walkways allow easy access to all areas for visitation.

Established in accordance with the spirit and letter of Jewish tradition, all graves are of equal size, exemplifying the ideals of dignity and equality before God and mankind, with bronze plaques at ground level. The cemetery is maintained under a perpetual care program with a one-time charge for internment rights. Many families choose to purchase well in advance of need, which relieves them of this burden during an emotionally stressful time.
