Built on Temple Beth El’s 10-acre campus in Boca Raton, and surrounded by mature trees, glorious water features and pristine landscape, the Beth El Mausoleum is the only mausoleum in the United States to be built on temple grounds.
Patterned brick walkways lead down breeze-filled corridors to a rotunda and cascading fountain. The Tree of Remembrance and Marble Benches provide moments for reflection and opportunities to memorialize loved ones. An air-conditioned, marble and bronze two-story structure is filled with beautiful Judaic artwork, mosaics, stained glass and etched marble.
The Tree of Life Garden and the Joyce Throne Meditation Garden are surrounded by tropical landscaping and park benches where you can visit your loved ones, reflect and pray.
For members of Temple Beth El, funeral services may be held at Temple Beth El in the Rabbi Merle E. Singer Sanctuary, which has capacity for up to 500 people, the Starkoff Chapel or in the Mausoleum Chapel for a more intimate service. Our knowledgeable, caring and compassionate clergy are always available for comfort and pastoral care or guidance in Jewish traditions and customs.
Then it is just a short walk down the hill, past the shade trees to the mausoleum for the ceremony. Those who like may arrange to offer a Meal of Consolation to their friends and family in attendance.
Contact a Mausoleum Advisor to arrange for a tour or private consultation.
Temple membership is not required for purchase at the Beth El Mausoleum, however a complimentary one-year membership is included so that you may become acquainted with our clergy and congregation. Many decide to stay on as members, joining a warm and spirited Jewish community for services, adult education or cultural and social programming.Those who choose not to continue their membership remain secure in the knowledge that their final resting place is among those who share the values, traditions and beliefs of their Jewish heritage.
