Sharon Memorial Park, the largest Jewish cemetery in New England is building a new administration building and chapel.  With the addition of the chapel, Sharon will now be able to offer families the option of having funeral services indoors at the cemetery.

 

The modern design of the new building and it’s use of glass and natural light are intended to bring the beauty of the park’s landscape indoors. The administration building will be open six days a week enabling visitors to get prayer books and yarmulkes, directions, maps, information and assistance. It is expected that the building will open in January of 2014.

 

“It is a very exciting time in the history of Sharon Memorial Park. This new, modern building will help to insure that we continue to provide the highest level of quality and service from generation to generation.”, said Fred Lappin the cemetery’s President.

 

Sharon Memorial Park has become an integral part of the fabric of the Jewish community of Greater Boston since it was founded in 1948 - the same year as the State of Israel.  Among the premier Jewish cemeteries in the U.S, Sharon Memorial Park is known nationally as one of the most beautiful cemeteries in the Northeast. 


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


 

 

 

Star of David Section

The Star of David section is a distinctive garden enclave with a granite pillar entrance and benches set along a tree-lined pathway.  It’s most distinguishing feature is our Holocaust Memorial Wall where lot owners at Sharon Memorial Park can have inscribed the names of up to five family members who died in the Holocaust.
