Gan Shalom is truly a garden of peace. The cemetery grounds were designed by a national cemetery design firm in December 2000. The tree-lined drive leads to entry gates of stone and wrought iron. Passing through the gates one enters the cemetery grounds shaded by live oaks, palms, and pine trees. Seating areas are available for prayer or quiet contemplation.
The cemetery is being developed in phases. The first phase is divided into three garden sections: B’nai Israel Garden available to the entire Jewish community, Bet Olam open to interfaith families, and the Kol Ami Garden for members of Congregation Kol Ami. Acreage remains for future development. To ensure the Jewish traditions and laws appropriate to each section are observed, the cemetery is governed by rules and regulations and will be operated under rabbinical supervision.
Two garden sections are available in the B'nai Israel Garden serving all of the Jewish Community and traditional practices. Bet Olam Garden, available for Jewish and interfaith families. Please call for further information.
