May my death be honorable and my life be a healing memory for those who know me.
Viddui: Final Confessional Prayer, Rabbi Remi Shapiro


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.
