Temple Emeth Memorial Park and Or Emet

Temple Emeth Memorial Park cemetery, established in 1957, is actively maintained by our Memorial Park Committee. It is located two miles from Temple Emeth, within the Baker Street Jewish Cemeteries at 776 Baker Street, West Roxbury/Boston. Our new cemetery, Or Emet, was dedicated in June 2012 and grave sites are now available to the community. For information contact the Executive Director by phone 617-469-9400 or email.

The Jewish Cemetery Association of Massachusetts offers many downloadable resources relating to cemeteries, including a guide to Massachusetts Jewish cemeteries, an explanation of Jewish cemetery symbols, a pamphlet on unveilings, and the origins of leaving a visitation stone. A Time to Mourn, A Time to Comfort, a project of the Federation of Jewish Men’s Clubs, contains information about Jewish cemeteries, and is available in the Temple’s library.

Our New Cemetery - Or Emet

Or Emet (Genuine Light) adjoins our original Memorial Park and has 1200 spaces available to all those who seek a traditional Jewish burial. For information about grave sites, contact our Executive Director at 617-469-9400 or by email.
