Designing Your Funeral
There are two facets of the design process. First, we ask you to consider how you wish to honor your loved one either with a chapel service or graveside service. When those important decisions are made, we’ll turn to the issue of how you wish to care for the physical remains.
How to Honor a Life
It’s about bringing those you love together, at a time of loss. It’s a natural thing to do, and over time, has become a socially-expected practice. More importantly, a funeral whether traditional, or contemporary, is the first step in healing.
You can have your service anywhere, and any way, you want. Your choices include chapel or graveside, day of the week, and time of day. We can arrange to have services from reformed to traditional. We’re here to help you create the most memorable and meaningful service to honor your loved one.
Judaism has many different traditions and ceremonies. Some families follow to the letter of the law, while some follow more relaxed traditions. Please know we're able to help you come to the perfect decision for your loved one, and for you.
Now that we've given you the basics, it's time to reflect more on exactly what is appropriate for you and your family. If possible, gather everyone together to speak of their feelings and desires.
