Situated between the Everglades and the Atlantic Ocean in the southern tip of Florida, the Star of David Cemetery serves the Jewish community of Broward County with rich traditions and heritage that has been honored for hundreds of years. The well-known cemetery is also known as the Star of David Memorial Gardens Cemetery and Funeral Chapel, and staff is proud to provide cultural services and memorials for residents of Broward, Lauderdale, North Dade and South Palm Beach areas of this affluent community.
Though newly incorporated in 2003, the cemetery grounds have served Broward County residents for decades. The immaculately kept grounds provide a rich taste of southern trees, shrub arrangements and flowers that remain in bloom most of the year. Lawns are well maintained and offer a striking green background against the perpetual blue skies of southern Florida. A recent addition to the cemetery is a striking two-piece monument that commemorates the Holocaust, as the Star of David Cemetery serves as the final resting place of more than 100 Holocaust survivors, as well as sports, political and religious figures of Broward County.
The Star of David Cemetery offers traditional Jewish services and options for residents, loved ones and family and friends of those who have passed, and the lovely grounds provide a soothing sense of comfort, accompanied by ocean breezes carrying the scent of a multitude of magnolia and dogwood trees as well as hibiscus and other native Florida plants.
Tucked between Lauderdale-by-the-Sea and the Atlantic Ocean on the east and the Everglades to the west, the Star of David Cemetery can be accessed from Florida 441, also known as
Florida's Turnpike, with a turn off on either W. McNab Road or NW 50th St (Hwy 870). Turn onto W. 71st Street or SW 81st Ave and then NW 62nd St to the front gates of this small yet tradition rich cemetery that honors those of the Jewish faith and offers peace and comfort and the passing on of traditions in the deepest sense of the word.
