The Jewish Burial Association of Madison (JBAM) is an IRS 501(c)(3) not-for-profit entity that operates Beit Olamim, the Jewish cemetery In the northeast corner of the Sunset Memory Gardens cemetery. Beit Olamim has two distinct and equally beautiful and meaningful areas for burial: Sha’ar HaRachamin (Gates of Compassion), which requires those who are buried to be Jewish, as defined in the rules and regulations. This section does not permit burial of cremains. Sha’ar Shalom (Gates of Peace), which requires those who are buried to have been born Jewish, converted to Judaism, or a close relative of a Jewish person who was buried or expects to be buried here. It also allows burial of cremains. Requirements for burial in these sections are in the JBAM “Rules and Regulations” document on our website.
