Holy Blossom Cemetery/Pape Avenue
This cemetery, established in 1849, was transferred to Holy Blossom when the synagogue was founded in 1856. It was used for burials until the 1930s and contains the graves of many of the founders and early notables of the Toronto Jewish community. No plots are available for purchase.
Glenview Memorial Gardens – Beit Olam
At Beit Olam, Jews will be buried with all the Jewish rites and rituals, while having the comfort of being laid to rest alongside their loved ones. To Honour the Deceased (K’vod haMeit) and To Comfort Mourners (Nichum Aveilim) are essential mitzvot. With the establishment of Beit Olam, we will further our ability to do both with dignity and compassion. Glenview Cemetery is pleased to provide the Jewish community with an identifiably Jewish burial section, which will preserve the Jewish Heritage in their serene landscapes.
