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). Chevra Kadisha Services are supervised by the Vaad of Queens-Rabbi Elchonon Zohn Director. There is a Mikvah on Premises. We serve all cemeteries in New York and New Jersey. Transportation from Florida,California, and many other states, including Israel can be arranged. We are a proud member of CHOICES, the New Jersey Prepaid Funeral Trust Fund.
At the end of the Fiscal year, any surplus earned by the Chapel is returned back to the community to many of the fine Jewish charities in the area. The money is earmarked for education, health, or care of the elderly.The criteria for membership of the chapel is ownership of grounds at a Jewish Cemetery.
