Sons of Israel & Beit Shalom Cemeteries

Sons of Israel Cemetery was established in January 1903 by members of the Sons of Israel Association. The cemetery was incorporated and dedicated as an Orthodox Jewish cemetery under the direction of its initial trustees: Isaac Cahn, Max Safron, Benjamin Rosenberg, M. Behrman and A. Wasserstrom.

In 1975, Sons of Israel Cemetery became the property of Temple Shalom. Today, Sons of Israel Cemetery remains owned and maintained by Temple Shalom and is governed by the Temple's Cemetery Committee and By-Laws. Sons of Israel Cemetery is open to all Jews (born or by conversion).

There are two options: Sons of Israel (Orthodox) Established 1903 & Beit Shalom (Non-Orthodox) Established 2020.

Sons of Israel & Beit Shalom Cemeteries are located behind city-owned Evergreen Cemetery: 1005 Hancock Expy., Colorado Springs, CO  80903. Enter through the Evergreen Cemetery main gate and follow the Sons of Israel signs.

At the cemetery appointment, you will be given a packet that contains a worksheet and the rules and regulations for both cemeteries. You will have an opportunity to discuss your needs and make a plot selection.  Our committee volunteers will gladly assist you.

Plots are purchased through the Temple Shalom business office. Payment for a plot(s) must be made in full at the time of purchase. Adjacent plots cannot be reserved without full payment and purchase. Upon receipt of payment the purchaser will receive a certificate that reflects the buyer's name and location.
