Westlawn Cemetery and Mausoleum
Westlawn’s pristine grounds were consecrated in 1937, providing a peaceful environment to visit the deceased. Large oak trees scattered throughout the grounds, provide shade from the sun and a connection with the serenity of nature. Here is a space for memories and roots to deepen. Acknowledging the diversity of today’s Jewish community, Westlawn Cemetery is available to all Jewish families.
Westlawn Cemetery’s Mausoleum is a contemporary structure located on the northeast sector of our grounds. Completed in 2004, its skylights and minimalist design evoke a feeling of earth and heaven throughout three levels. Entombment and columbarium options are available. The ease of visiting in a comfortable, climate-controlled environment makes entombment a desirable and cost-effective option for many families.

Temple Sholom of Chicago
Temple Sholom, founded in 1867, is one of Chicago’s oldest synagogues. Temple Sholom is a place of great historical significance in the Reform Movement and a dynamic, modern approach to Judaism. Our large and welcoming congregation is the perfect place to find a spiritual community. Westlawn Cemetery and Lakeshore Jewish Funerals are part of the Temple Sholom family.
