Prior to constructing the Home of Peace mausoleum, private family mausoleums were the only options for above-ground entombments and inurnments. The indoor mausoleum’s red-tiled dome, marble interior and torpedo-globed chandeliers evoke design elements of Congregation Emanu-El’s beautiful building at Lake Street and Arguello Boulevard in San Francisco, which in turn is reminiscent of the Hagia Sophia in Istanbul, Turkey. The Home of Peace mausoleum opened in 1935. Several decades later, the Garden of Peace outdoor mausoleum was constructed. Both mausoleums offer crypt entombment and inurnment in niches.
