Of course, you’re looking for answers but, where do you begin? When a loved one passes on, you may feel overwhelmed and uncertain. We will help you gather your thoughts, listen to your wishes, give you a clear starting point and help you through it all.

After the death of a loved one, what should I do first?

In circumstances where death is imminent, it’s best to contact Beth Abraham before the need arises. Our funeral director will guide you in a professional and informative manner. We are available to assist you at any time of the day or evening. Many families choose to have a hospice program such as VNS, Calvary or MJHS administer care in the home of the dying person. Once death has occurred, the family should immediately call the hospice nurse on duty to come to the home and make the official pronouncement of death. The nurse or a family member can call the funeral home to come and bring your loved one into our care. In the event of an inpatient hospital death, our staff will work with the appropriate administrator to coordinate the transfer to our facility. In situations where death is sudden, the police and the medical examiner may intervene to determine the circumstances surrounding the death. No matter the situation, it is best to know your options in advance.

What exactly is a “Jewish” funeral?

First and foremost, the intent of a Jewish funeral is to comfort the survivors. It is important that those close family members, with support from clergy and extended family, decide what customs and traditions best meet your needs. The funeral service should be designed to honor the memory of your loved one and support the survivors in their time of need. Judaism provides the context, friends and family provide the support, and the funeral director is there to make sure all the necessary elements are presented in a seamless, dignified manner.

Beth Abraham provides the highest quality funeral services during your time of need. Jewish families that select Beth Abraham for their loved-one’s services often describe their experience as if they were dealing with family.

We can provide everything you need, whether you wish to hold the service in our funeral chapel, in your synagogue, or at the graveside.
