Jewish tradition requires that caskets be made from natural material. We provide plain, modest caskets made of wood that will disintegrate into the ground. This allows the body to return to the earth in quick time which enables the soul to attain final peace.

                        Limo Service

A funeral is difficult enough; therefore we arrange transportation services for mourners and comforters according to needs. The limousines we hire can service up to ten passengers per vehicle. This gives mourners the comfort of remaining together on the way to the synagogue and the cemetery. We guide the chauffeurs to the synagogue and cemetery so you don’t have to do anything except get into the limo.

Interment in Eretz Yisroel

When you wish to intern your loved one in the holy earths of Eretz Yisroel, we are here to ensure a smooth transition and will make all legalized arrangements, including shemira, permits, transfer case and transport as well as airline tickets and arrangements for family member to go along.  

Out of State Deaths

When a loved one dies out of New York State but wishes to be buried there it makes financial and emotional sense to call the funeral home that will do the ending burial. Since  we are affiliated with funeral homes in all states we can provide transfer arrangements and burial services at lower cost than would be incurred if the family would pay both the out of state funeral home and end user funeral home for services. As the end user, we will make arrangements with out of state funeral homes for trustworthy and professional transfers and then provide services for local burial.

Legal arrangements

After a death there are some legal matters to take care of. Taking care of legal matters concerning burial can be especially difficult during mourning. We help you apply for a death certificate as well as a burial permit in a timely and professional manner.
