The past months have been most trying for our community. Our priority has and continues to be to perform the sacred duties of burial with the utmost dignity and respect. We recognize how difficult the closure has been for those who have lost loved ones.
Our responsibility to our staff and the public is to ensure your safety and guard against the compounding of a tragic situation. We have asked families to work with us to ensure physical distancing while on the grounds and we thank the members of our BT family for their compliance with provincial laws.
Beth Tzedec is part of a group of Jewish
