The OLAM HAEMES SOCIETY provides Jewish burial spaces for all members of the Jewish community here in San Diego County. Synagogue or temple affiliation is not needed. The Society owns the Garden of Eden Section, which is located in El Camino Memorial Park in Sorrento Valley.
The cemetery was consecrated by representations of all traditional orthodox organizations in response to the need for centrally located, safe and secure grounds, for the expanding Jewish population.
The open lawn combines serene beauty coupled with a dignified setting to provide a comforting burial space. Proper perpetual care of the grounds is assured by a California State supervised endowment fund. The OLAM HAEMES SOCIETY maintains the sanctity associated with proper Jewish burial under the dignified auspices of the Chevra Kadisha - Sacred Burial Society.
