Beth Israel Cemetery is a Jewish cemetery created with an atmosphere of true religious significance. The “Bible Garden” was fashioned from the very rock and soil of the Holy Land. Plants brought from the Holy Land were dedicated by Eleanor Roosevelt on June 2, 1957. Among the outstanding features of the Park is a prominent white stone monument showing the Ten Commandments flanked by two majestic lions, which is a memorial to the 6 million Jews killed in the Holocaust.
Beth Israel offers in-ground burial in monumental and memorial park sections, lawn crypts and in-ground cremation gardens as well as chapel, atrium and garden crypts and niches in the mausoleums.
Woodbridge Memorial Gardens, serving all faiths, offers chapel, atrium and garden crypts and niches in the mausoleum. For more information visit our Woodbridge Memorial Gardens page.
