Mike Sirowitz, a native New Yorker, had the opportunity to retire early and relocate to Boca Raton in 2017. He immediately joined Temple Beth El, and became a valued member of the temple community. So much so that he agreed to “unretire” and become the Beth El Mausoleum Director when the opportunity arose. Since then, Mike has helped countless people throughout the South Florida Jewish community with their end-of-life arrangements at the Beth El Mausoleum. Through his kindness and expertise, he has earned the reputation as a warm and caring individual who is honored to help families and individuals every step of the way on what may be a difficult journey.
From one of the many Google reviews:
“I would second the other reviews that speak to the physical space, which is indeed dignified, beautiful, immaculate, and accessible. I would also highly recommend the staff, in particular the director, Michael, and of course Rabbi Greg Weisman. Everyone went above and beyond my expectations in order to make an extremely difficult and emotional time transition into something peaceful and natural, which is what I think we all want for our loved ones.”
On a personal note, Mike has a son named Jacob who is traveling the world as a first mate in the private yachting industry. When not at work, Mike enjoys coming to synagogue, watching sports, live music and traveling as much as possible.
In addition to helping you with your arrangements at the Beth El Mausoleum, Mike can assist with anything additional you may need - arranging an appointment with a licensed Social Worker to help you and your loved ones during the grieving process, connecting you with hospice, or providing information on bereavement support groups, elder care law firms, funeral homes or social services agencies.
