Shaar Shalom Cemetery

shaar-shalom-cemeteryThe Shaar Shalom Congregation owns and operates its own cemetery in accordance with Conservative Judaism. A stone commemorating the dedication of the Shaar Shalom Cemetery was laid on October 18, 1953. In July 2019, the Esther and Morris Strug Memorial Garden was created to provide a covered seating area and ritual wash station with gardens on each side. In 2021 the cemetery area was expanded to cover the entire land parcel. This expansion was made possible through another generous donation in memory of Esther and Morris Strug.

The cemetery is located in Halifax on Connaught Avenue just below the corner of Windsor Street. Visits are welcomed and can be arranged by contacting the synagogue office.

Note: Photographs of recent headstones may not have been taken yet.
