שָׁלוֹם and welcome to our website.
Toronto Hebrew Memorial Parks is unique in its origins as a community-owned organization. It exists to serve the Jewish Community of Greater Toronto by fulfilling obligations of establishing and maintaining cemeteries through the provision of professional administration and ongoing supervision, while showing respect for the Community’s beliefs and practices.
As our founder Sidney Freedman noted in a speech at the opening of Pardes Shalom Cemetery’s front gates:
“It is here that the recently departed seem to linger a while. It is here that we can still come to grieve, to take inspiration, to assert ourselves, to ask to be forgiven, to right old wrongs, and to talk to stones that mark a very special place.”
