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.
Ontario has released its reopening plans as of June 11, 2021. Please see Roadmap to Reopen.
