Frequently Asked Questions | Meals of Condolence

One traditional part of a Jewish funeral is the Shiva, which often begins at a mourner’s home immediately following the funeral. In the Boca Raton area, where many have downsized to smaller apartments, people often don’t have the space to host a large gathering. Another benefit of the Beth El Mausoleum being part of, and on the grounds of, Temple Beth El is our ability to host a meal of condolence for as few as 25 guests and as many as several hundred. We have the facilities and an in-house caterer who will handle everything for you from start to finish. With minimal effort to set up and nothing to clean up, you can spend this important time with your family and friends.
