Chesed Shel Emet –
Truest Act of Kindness
Chesed Shel Emet has two magnificent gated entrances displaying Jewish prayers cast in bronze. Granite urns holding visitation stones and granite basins with running water are located at each entrance.
– A Place of Peace
We have officially opened a new three-acre section along our Belmont Avenue frontage to accommodate families of the Jewish faith.
This new section was designed as a beautiful contemplative experience that knits tradition with natural beauty. Utilizing a series of garden-scaled, terraced landscape rooms to embrace an inward sensibility of remembrance, the design respects Jewish funeral customs and culture, while integrating effortlessly with the surrounding landscape of Laurel Hill West. Ultimately, this new section will engage with the land to provide a naturalistic setting organized into a collection of smaller burial neighborhoods.
Makom Shalom holds close to 900 graves within three acres of gardenesque landscape.
