Southwestern Jewish Press, May 14, 1954, page 7

Tifereth Israel Synagogue with Greenwood Memorial Park will dedicate the new Sholom Mausoleum on Sunday, May 30 at 2:00 p.m. at the Greenwood Memorial Park.

Sholom Mausoleum is a completely sepaarate building in beajutiful Greenwood Memorial Park.  It is not attached in any way to a general mausoleum.  Modern in design it incorporates rich Jewish symbolism and traditional motifs.  The word “Sholom” proudly illuminated by a flood light, greets the visiotr as he enters through beautiful glass doors. 

The ready acceptance of Sholom by the Community is evidenced by the fact that it is already over three quarters reserved. The synagogue and the management of Greenwood memorial Park are alreay laying plans for another addition to Sholom, which will double its present capacity.

A cordial invitation is extended to everyone to be present at the Dedication Exercises on Memorial Day, Sunday, May 30 at 2 p.m.  inquiries regarding Sholom Mausoleum may be made by calling the Synagogue or Greenwood Memorial Park, CO-4-3131.
