A sacred space. The mausoleum.
Our mausoleum, built in 1930 in the classic Byzantine style of architecture, provides families an alternative to ground burial, with single and companion crypts and niches for remains. This space provides permanent protection to the departed within its sheltered walls, while also providing a reverent atmosphere to comfort visitors. Sunlight muted by leaded stain glass windows is further reflected by the highly polished surfaces to provide the chapel a warm natural, environment. The chapel seats up to 130 and is available for all services both ground and within the mausoleum.
A long-established mainstay. The Willet Street Cemetery.
The original – our Willet Street Cemetery, established in 1840 and Cleveland’s first Jewish cemetery, is located at 2254 Fulton Road, just south of Lorain Road. This cemetery is just 1.6 acres, however, it is noteworthy as it is the location of many of the first Jewish settlers that made Cleveland their home. Access to the cemetery beyond the gate requires prior notice.
