Or Shalom benefits from the generosity of the Schara Tzedeck Cemetery and Chevra Kadisha when an Or Shalom family is in need of these services.  The Or Shalom Rabbi officiates at a funeral, and is the first place to contact in time of need.  There is a special phone number for use at  times of rabbinic emergency, which you can get by phoning the or shalom office number.

In 2014 Or Shalom began the process of exploring making available a small cemetery area in MountainView cemetery in Vancouver. Discussions are still underway with the City of Vancouver and this remains an option only in the future.
