Introducing video tributes. An homage to a life well-lived.
At Hebrew Memorial Chapel, we never stop trying to find new ways to add meaning
to the funeral service. Recently, we began offering video tributes -- a photographic
montage celebrating the life of your loved one. This keepsake plays on video monitors
located throughout the chapel before or after the service, and on our website.
