Beth El Memorial Park

Beth El Memorial Park is a verdant 6+ acre property owned by Beth El Memorial Park, Inc. that began in 1937. We have a board composed of 10 members who oversee the finances and cemetery operation. We are located on Mechanicsville Road in Whitehall, PA just across the street from St. Stephen's Church. Please use St. Stephen's Church address which is 3900 Mechanicsville Road, Whitehall, PA 18052. 

 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. There is also a mixed marriage section of the cemetery that permits a current member of Temple Beth El (at the time of purchase) to bury themselves as well as a non-Jewish spouse in this section and some non-Jewish family members. Please refer to the mixed marriage section of the Rules and Regulations that govern this section. To purchase Rights, please contact Ivan Schonfeld at (610) 349-1721 or You may also contact any other member of the committee. For the Rules and Regulations - Click here

When is Access to the Park Permitted? You may visit during daylight hours except on Shabbat or Yom Tov.
