Monument Unveilings

We want to ensure that the unveiling of the monument of your loved one is meaningful to you, your family and your friends. Therefore, we ask that you please contact our office to advise us of the proposed date and time of the unveiling. Our staff can advise you if the proposed date is expected to be busy or not. You may also wish to use our on-site facilities at Pardes Shalom before or after an unveiling. On days which are expected to be very busy due to unveilings, we will arrange for traffic controllers to assist the public. It is therefore very important that you advise our office of the unveiling date and time. Our office can be reached at 416.635.5595.
