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. 

We are in a Province-wide shutdown.

The Province has also declared a State of Emergency and issued a stay-at-home order. Ontarians must remain at home except for essential errands and outings (such as childcare, work, groceries, and healthcare). Unless you are planning to attend a funeral service, and are one of the ten people permitted to attend that service, please do not visit our cemeteries at this time. 

Please see below for updates. 







COVID-19 Notice – Week of January 17, 2021

The number of new COVID-19 cases continues to grow and the Province requires all Ontarians to limit trips outside of the home to essential purposes so that we can try to stop the spread of COVID-19. 

We ask that, in accordance with Ontario law, and the stay-at-home Provincial order, that you please do not visit our cemeteries at this time. If you nonetheless come to the cemetery for a visit, you may be subject to tickets and fines from by-law officers and police.

The law for attendees at funerals remains the same; ten people maximum, including clergy. This will be strictly enforced.

For more information on the shutdown, please refer to Province Wide Shut Down.

If you must come to our cemeteries, please take every precaution including wearing a facemask/covering. Please ensure that you maintain physical distancing, as required, and only gather as permitted by law. 

FUNERAL SERVICES – Ontario law restricts gatherings for funerals. If necessary, please discuss this limit with the funeral chapel (Benjamin’s Park Memorial Chapel,  Hebrew Basic Burial, and Steeles Memorial Chapel).  We will not be able to proceed with any funeral service unless there is strict compliance with the number permitted to gather and the required physical distancing.

For everyone’s safety, our cemetery offices remain closed to the public and there will be no access to hand-washing stations.

We will continue to post updates on our website, but if you have a specific question, please email us at  or call us at 416.635.5595 and we will do our best to be in touch with you as soon as possible.

Thank you very much for your understanding and cooperation.

Please stay home and stay safe.
