Jewish Caskets

Selecting a casket is one of the most important steps of the burial process. It is a highly personal decision because it will serve as the final resting place for the deceased. This decision is even more imperative for those of the Jewish faith. Jewish funeral traditions are based upon specific rituals and traditions that cannot be compromised. One of these traditions is the type of casket that must be used.
 

At Manhattan Jewish funeral home, we stock a wide selection of beautiful Jewish caskets for sale. Each of these beautiful wooden containers meet the requirement of Jewish Law or “halacha”. We understand how difficult this decision can be to make and are happy to provide you with information and assistance during the decision process.

 

Each casket is completely free from metal materials and held together with glue and wooden dowels. No two caskets are the same which is why our caskets are available at different price points. Caskets prices are set based on the type of wood that is used, the craftsmanship involved with building the casket, the level of detail put into it, and the kind of finish that is used.

 

When you are selecting a casket, please remember that your decision should be based upon your budget and which one you feel is the correct choice to serve as your loved one’s final resting place. We understand that every family has different needs and a different budget which is why our staff ensures we offer a range of products to be able to cater to everyone.

 

A Better Understanding of Jewish Caskets

To have a better understanding of Jewish caskets, we must first look at the reasoning behind this. In the Book of Genesis, it states “For dust you are, and to dust, you shall return.” The Jewish faith believes that for a life cycle to be complete, the body must go back to the earth and become a part of it. This is achieved by making the burial as natural as possible because the soul does not rest until the body has returned to the Earth.

 

Jewish caskets must be a simple and plain box built completely from wood. According to Jewish Law, it states that there should be no nails or hinges and the box must be made from wood and materials that will decompose with the body.

If you have any questions about any of the Jewish caskets we sell or would like to learn more, please contact us to speak with a member of our staff. We would be pleased to meet with you in person and showcase our beautiful selection of caskets up close so you can truly appreciate the hard work that goes into making them.
