The gates of Shalom Memorial Park Jewish Cemetery reads
“Beit HaChaim”, which means “The House of the Living”.
Our gates proclaim this because it is our mission to respect and care for our departed in the dignified and loving manner they deserve, while always serving the needs of the living. L’Dor v’Dor … From Generation to Generation.
We keep Shalom Memorial Park’s 135-acre park-like setting in pristine condition for the comfort of our visitors.
Designed in the Memorial Park Movement, Shalom’s grounds are open, manicured spaces to be a comfortable, meditative place suited for reflection, visitation and prayer. We are committed to sustaining a loving memory when one comes to pay respects over the individual memorials for those they have loved.
Shalom provides a wide variety of burial options for individuals, spouses and for families throughout the Jewish cemetery.
“Show me the manner in which a nation cares for its dead and I will measure with mathematical exactness the tender mercy of its people, their respect for the laws of the land and their loyalty to high ideals.” ~ Sir William Gladstone
Throughout the Park, you will find enduring bronze memorials designed for individuals, companions, or for families. Having a place to visit provides an important focal point for memorializing those who have passed. To remember, and be remembered, are natural human needs.
The cemetery grounds feature carefully selected Sculpture and Artwork, the Shalom Memorial Funeral Home Chapel, the Beth She’arim Mausoleum, Private Family Estates, the Migdal Hazikaron, and Traditional Burial Property.
For these reasons, Shalom Memorial has become the Jewish cemetery of choice for the Jewish communities of Chicago and the North Shore Suburbs with official affiliations with over 50 local congregations.
For further convenience, Shalom’s offices and facilities are directly on-site.
We are conveniently located in Arlington Heights and easily accessible from Chicago and surrounding suburbs.
It is crucially important to note that Shalom Memorial Park is a Perpetual Care Cemetery. This means that future generations of loved ones will never be burdened with charges and it ensures that the entire cemetery will be uniformly well maintained.
We encourage the placement of cut flowers only during the growing season, March through October, and artificial flowers during the non-growing season, November through February. The flowers must be placed in vases which are a part of the memorial, or in temporary vases which are available at the Administration Building. Potted plants, plantings of any kind, or flowers laid on the interment spaces are not allowed as this would detract from the carefully planned landscaping and natural beauty of the Park.
If you wish, we will provide, at no charge, annual Yahrzeit notifications via email for any loved one (it doesn’t matter if they are at rest at Shalom or any other Jewish Cemetery).
Keep us informed of any change of address so that we can continue to supply you with important information.
