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. 

Our cemeteries will be closed for the Jewish holy days which fall out on: 

Sept. 7, 8, 16, 21, 22, 28 and 29
