Jewish Mourning

Let Shalom Memorial Chapels assist in this difficult time.

There are two important principles in the Jewish faith regarding death and mourning. The first, Kavod Ha-met, requires that the body be treated with respect from the time of passing. The second is the idea that death is a natural process—a part of life. We do our best to comfort those in grief and to support the religious aspects of the funeral ritual.

We specialize in creating a service that includes the observances and rituals most appropriate to you and your loved one.

Most families choose to follow at least some of the rituals of Jewish burial tradition. We specialize in creating a service that includes the observances and rituals most appropriate to you and your loved one that is ceremonially correct and dignified in every detail whether Reform, Conservative, or Orthodox. We offer each family the opportunity to decide on traditional and non-traditional services in all cases. Please feel free to discuss any special preferences you may have with our experienced staff.
