Cemetery Description: Toronto Hebrew Memorial Parks (THMP) is a not-for-profit Ontario corporation founded in 1972. Run as a business by a corporation, it serves and is owned by the total community in all of its diversity. Pardes Shalom opened in 1977 and is THMP's first cemetery; it comprises eighty-nine acres with about 30,000 burial lots. In addition to seventy member organizations which have allotments in the cemetery, Pardes Shalom was the first Toronto-area cemetery to offer whole community sections for the burial of Jews who did not have burial rights through a synagogue or other institution. Headstone photographs are available for most burials through 2012/2013 (and are in the process of being added to JOWBR). Please contact to request a headstone photograph; please provide the decedent's name, cemetery section, and row and grave numbers. Headstone photographs for more recent burials can also be requested at this address and are anticipated to be fulfilled during the summer months. Pardes Shalom Cemetery is owned by Toronto Hebrew Memorial Parks; telephone: 416-635-5595; e-mail:; website: For a cemetery map, see In 2019, THMP launched its ""THMP Find a Grave"" app (available for iOS and Android) that helps to locate graves at their cemeteries, including GPS directions.
