Groman Eden to be rededicated


Groman Eden Mortuary will be hosting a dedication ceremony on June 13 at 6:30 p.m. to commemorate its restoration.

The ceremony will be officiated by Rabbi Jerry Cutler of Creative Arts Temple. He will be blessing the building and placing the prayers inside mezuzahs that will hang on the upper right side of certain doorways.

The ceremony will also include a brief history of the mortuary. Afterward, there will be a light reception, and guests can tour the mortuary on their own or with a staff-led group. A shomer will be in attendance to explain the custom of watching the bodies of the deceased before burial, and another person will be available to explain the functions of the newly refurbished taharah, or ritual washing room.

Groman Eden Mortuary began its restoration project in 2010, according to general manager Anthony Lampe. The electrical system, wiring, carpet and some furniture were replaced, but the original colonial style of the building was retained.

Groman Eden Mortuary is part of the network Dignity Memorial. More information on Dignity Memorial services can be found at dignitymemorial.com.

The mortuary is located at 11500 Sepulveda Blvd., Mission Hills. RSVPs for the restoration ceremony are encouraged and may be left with Phyllis Grabot at (805) 341-7269. For more information about Groman Eden Mortuary, call (818) 365-7151 or visit gromanedenmortuary.com.
