About The Mausoleum

Meet Our Mausoluem Director

Mike Sirowitz, a native New Yorker, had the opportunity to retire early and relocate to Boca Raton in 2017. He immediately joined Temple Beth El, and became a valued member of the temple community. So much so that he agreed to “unretire” and become the Beth El Mausoleum Director when the opportunity arose.  Since then, Mike has helped countless people throughout the South Florida Jewish community with their end-of-life arrangements at the Beth El Mausoleum. Through his kindness and expertise, he has earned the reputation as a warm and caring individual who is honored to help families and individuals every step of the way on what may be a difficult journey.

In addition to helping you with your arrangements at the Beth El Mausoleum, Mike can assist with anything additional you may need – arranging an appointment with a licensed Social Worker to help you and your loved ones during the grieving process, connecting you with hospice, or providing information on bereavement support groups, elder care law firms, funeral homes or social services agencies.
