Beth El Memorial Park
Beth El Memorial Park is a verdant 6+ acre property owned by Beth El Memorial Park, Inc. We have a board composed of 10 members who oversee the finances and operation. We are located on Mechanicsville Road in Whitehall, PA just across from St. Stephens Church. [Click here for directions].
Who can and how do I purchase a Lot?
You may purchase a Certificate of Rights to a lot consisting of one or more graves as a member of the Jewish faith, entitling the person named on the Certificate to bury a Jewish person in one or more of the graves in the lot he/she “purchased”. One must be Jewish to hold a Certificate and be buried at Beth El Memorial Park, but need not be a member of Temple Beth El. To purchase Rights, please contact Ivan Schonfeld at email@example.com or any other member of the committee.
When is Access to the Park Permitted? You may visit during daylight hours except on Shabbat or Yom Tov.
