Hello All,

Now that the renovations are almost complete at the Bank Street cemetery, there is new information on visiting hours, wayfinding, flowers etc.

Entry into the cemetery
Entry to the cemetery is through the main entrance in the middle of the cemetery. All of the other entry gates will normally be locked.

Leaving the cemetery
While left turns on to Bank Street from the cemetery are permitted, it is recommended that you turn right and then take the first right turn at D’Aoust Street, which ends at Albion Road. This will allow cars to exit faster, and is much safer than attempting the left turn into busy oncoming traffic.

Visiting Hours
The cemetery will be open Sunday to Friday and closed on Shabbat. Summer hours are 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and in the fall and winter 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. The gates are on a timer and will lock automatically at closing time. If the gates close while someone is still in the cemetery, there is a sign posted in front of the gate indicating that if the car is advanced to that point, the gate will automatically open, allowing the vehicle to exit.

Parking Lot
We now have a parking lot that has 50 spots, two of which are designated as handicapped spots. For safety reasons, visitors are encouraged to use the parking lot rather than park on Bank Street.
Pets are not permitted on the cemetery grounds.

Please contact the Executive Director at executivedirector@jewishmemorialgardens.org to book a time for the unveiling. This will ensure there is enough parking in case other unveilings are scheduled for the same day.

There is no planting of any kind permitted at the cemetery. Unauthorized planting will be removed without notification. Installations or placings of artificial flowers or decorations is not permitted and will also be removed without notification. If you wish to purchase flowers, you can either call 613-688-3530 ext. 3 or email jmgottawaflowers@hotmail.com

There are now two washrooms on site, one of which is handicapped accessible, located at the building near the entrance to the cemetery. Washrooms will automatically lock at the cemetery closing time.

Handwashing Stations
There are now handwashing stations located throughout the cemetery. One is near the front entrance near the building, another near the Holocaust memorial, and two near the Reflective Gardens.

Wayfinding System
There will be two wayfinding boards. One will be near the entrance just past the building and another at the back, beside the parking lot. The boards will display a map and instructions on how to find a grave using a smart phone. The cemetery database is now available online on our website at www.jewishmemorialgardens.org under the “Information and Services” tab, under “Find A Grave” or by clicking on the following link http://www.jewishmemorialgardens.org/interment-listing/

A leaf on the Eitz Chaim $180
A memorial plaque on the Yahrzeit Board $300 each

NEW! TALLIT FUND: Our community has been fortunate to share countless simchas over the past years, many of which bring visitors and guests to our shul. As we look forward to future simchas, we are in the process of replacing the tallitot available near the entrance, and hope to purchase 12 new ones. There are two options for donating to the new Tallit Fund: sponsoring an entire tallit for $118, or contributing towards a tallit in the amount of your choosing. Sponsors of $118 or more will be honored with a plaque. May our CBTO family go from simcha to simcha!
