The Jewish Memorial Chapel is a unique funeral home. It is one of only a few nonprofit funeral homes in the United States. The Chapel is owned and operated by the Synagogues and other Jewish organizations in the area. Our funerals are conducted with dignity and in strict compliance with Halacha (Jewish Law).
At the end of the Fiscal year, any surplus earned by the Chapel is returned back to the community to many of the fine charities in the area. The money is earmarked for education, health/or care of the elderly. The criteria to be a member organization of the chapel is ownership of grounds at a Jewish cemetery.Learn More
