Until recent times, the Jewish funeral was almost uni-
versally at the cemetery. In Israel today, the funeral
home is practically non-existant and Jewish funerals
are held almost exclusively at the graveside. More and
more Jewish funerals in the United States follow this
direction.

Today, many are uncomfortable with funeral home
services followed by a dangerous procession to the
cemetery only to be followed by yet another service.
Instead a dignified cemetery service is preferred, where
family and friends can offer comfort when it is most
needed. This adheres to the tenets of respect and
simplicity that follow years of Jewish funeral tradition.

Yet existing funeral chapels charge the same for
gravesides as costly funeral home services. We believe
that families should only be charged for what they
need. We offer complete, personal services, substan-
tial savings and alternative choices.
