Give Your Family Peace of Mind
When death occurs, the emotional challenges can overwhelm anyone. Pre-planning and purchasing cemetery property is an act of love that spares family members difficult decisions during their time of grief. In addition, you avoid escalating costs and make your personal wishes known.
Beth Israel can help you arrange your plans. Our Cemetery & Mausoleum (C&M) Association provides Jewish burial space for members and their extended families. Our history is directly connected to San Diego’s first Jewish cemetery, dating from 1862.

Mount of Olives Memorial Lawns at El Camino Memorial Park
El Camino Memorial Park in Sorrento Valley is a setting that combines the serene beauty of rolling hills, grassy slopes and open lawn areas that provide a comforting burial place. Beth Israel owns burial space in two areas of the Park, which we call Mount of Olives Memorial Lawns I & II. The first lawn opened in 1992 and there are no longer spaces available there. Mt. of Olives II has been open since 1998. Although the park is open to all faiths, our lawns are considered consecrated Jewish burial space. A polished granite memorial marker identifies each of our Lawns, A State supervised endowment fund assures proper perpetual care of the cemetery.

Home of Peace Corridors at Cypress View Mausoleum
Although in-ground burial has been associated with Jewish death rituals, above-ground mausoleum entombment has long been an option for Jewish burial. Our Corridors were planned to meet the needs of Jewish families by offering crypts at various levels in either individual, tandem companion, or side-by-side companion arrangements. For individuals deciding on cremation, niches for cremated remains are also available. Adjacent to the crypts, the Sol Stone Memorial Chapel provides an intimate, private area for small funeral gatherings.
