Planning ahead, a sense of relief at a time when it’s needed the most.
Advance Planning is an important conversation that too few of us have had. It’s not easy to talk about your end-of-life wishes, but beginning the conversation is the first step to honoring your wishes and protecting those who matter most when the time comes.
Put your preferences in writing – Providing a clearly worded document with specific direction about how you prefer your funeral service to be conducted eliminates difficult decisions for your loved ones.
Gift valuable time when needed – Making choices in advance frees those you love from the time and responsibility of making emotional and financial decisions when they are least equipped to do so.
Create a financial asset – Establishing a funeral trust when preplanning helps defray the cost of the funeral service providing both financial security and future tranquility – no matter how far in the future it occurs.
As a full-service mortuary and cemetery, Mount Sinai not only takes care of the initial transport and preparation needs, it also works closely with each family to arrange a funeral that serves as a personalized memorial to your loved one.
For many, a funeral incorporating Jewish traditions serves as a comfort to all who gather. Jewish funerals may be held entirely at graveside, or in a chapel or synagogue. The service is often led by a rabbi but may be led by any Jewish individual well-versed in the prayers and traditions.
In addition to burial rituals according to halacha (Jewish law) for those who wish, we also work with families to incorporate more contemporary arrangements including music, webcasting, and a memorial website.
