Our Jewish funeral home is proud to serve Jewish families from all boroughs of New York City. Operating a successful funeral home is no easy task. A Jewish funeral home is that much more difficult because there are intricacies, customs, and traditions that need to be adhered to. We do not take this task lightly. Many funeral homes do not have the resources and knowledge to properly provide Jewish funeral services.
We are the ideal funeral home for Jews in NYC – We can meet the demands of Reform, Orthodox, and Conservative Jews. We work tirelessly to plan services that meet Jewish tradition, yet we also work to meet personal wishes and wants.
1) A Family Business with Years of Funeral Service Excellence in NYC
Michael Lanza is the fourth generation of his family to serve the NYC community as a funeral director.
Outside of Manhattan Jewish Funeral Home, the Lanza family owns and operates 6 other funeral homes in NYC. The Lanza family has truly established themselves as death care leaders in New York City. They have developed outstanding relationships with families in NYC and truly care about the communities where they have locations.
2) Operating Ethically
Every business says they operate ethically to please clients. We operate ethically because it not only pleases clients, but it also is good for long term business and it is simply the right thing to do.
To us operating ethically means more that just following guidelines that every funeral home is suppose to follow. It means respecting and caring for families and their loved ones to the best of our abilities. It means being transparent about what we do and offer.
Our memberships within the National Funeral Directors Association and the New York Funeral Directors Association solidifies our dedication to ethical business practices.
3) Our Beautiful Funeral Home Facility
Our beautiful funeral home facility is one of the biggest advantages we have over any other funeral home. Our facility is stunning, modern, and spacious. Our Jewish funeral home thinks of our clients as guests. Therefore, we wanted our facility to be comfortable and welcoming. Also our facility has the flexibility to service many different types of ceremonies. We have invested a lot of work into making sure our facility stays up to date. When you are mourning a loved one, it is important to be in an environment that is comforting and offers all the amenities you need.
4) Quality Services at Competitive Prices
At Manhattan Jewish Funeral Home, we know many people get overwhelmed and scared when it comes to funeral costs. That’s why we have done our best to set prices that are reasonable. We know how much importance Jewish tradition puts on a funeral service, and that is why we believe you should not be restricted financially on how you honor your loved one. Although we are competitively priced, our services are of the highest quality.
5) Experts in Planning Jewish Funerals
Planning a funeral is difficult. Planning a Jewish funeral is even more difficult, and that is why we are here. Depending on how traditional you would like the service to be, we will work with you so the funeral service adheres to Jewish customs and traditions. Oftentimes the deceased wanted a very traditional Jewish funeral, but his/her children are unfamiliar with the Jewish practices. We sit down with the family and make sure everyone understands the process and what needs to be done.
Don’t just take our word for it, read some testimonials that families have provided.
6) Compassion & Continual Support
Although our main duty is to plan a special funeral service for your loved one, we have also taken it upon ourselves to provide the support your family needs while grieving your loss. We will be by your side before, during, and after the funeral. We will make sure your family gets through your loss.
