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 610-349-1721 or bethelmemorialpark.com. You may also contact 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.
