Because The Ira Kaufman Chapel has been in the same place

for so many years, we are asked if we plan to stay.

The answer: "We're focused on improving, not moving."

While we are closer to the "Old Neighborhood" the facts

show we are more convenient for the entire community.

We did the math. Looking at the 10 most commonly used

Jewish cemeteries in the Metro area, we are twice as close

than another chapel often described as "convenient." On

average, we are just six miles away.

Our Chapel is also easily accessible from all major freeways,

with ample parking, as well as five entrances and exits.

Understanding that location is important, we maintain one

that continues to meet this community's needs.
