Jewish Funeral Planning

The loss of a loved one is never easy. At Manhattan Jewish Funeral Home, we understand that this is a difficult time and are here to help you in your time of need. To help make this process easier, we have compiled pre-arranged package funeral and cremation packages to meet your needs. By selecting a prearranged package, you can rest assured that we have taken care of planning every aspect of the service.

 

If your family has any specific requests that aren’t included in our packages, we also offer the option to build your own service. Our general price list details the costs of each of the services and add-ons we offer for Jewish funeral planning.

 

Regardless of how you wish to proceed, our staff will work hard to ensure we help your family say goodbye and properly mourn the loss of your loved one.

Are You Planning a Jewish Funeral?

If your family is interested in planning a traditional Jewish funeral, our staff can assist you with the planning process. A Jewish funeral typically follows traditions that have been practiced for thousands of years.

 

Jewish funeral services are typically held in one of three places: the synagogue, a funeral home or the graveside. Typically, these services are quite brief and include a eulogy, reciting psalms, and a traditional closing prayer. The service closes by the casket being carried to the hearse and a processional to the cemetery.

 

Once at the cemetery a graveside service is held that is also quite brief. Once all of the guests have arrived, the service continues. The graveside service includes reciting more prayers prior to the lowering of the casket. The closing prayer is then recited for a second time.

 

The mourners then recite the Kaddish for the first time in their bereavement. This is followed by guests and mourners take turns placing dirt into the grave. Once the service has concluded, guests form two parallel lines facing each other. As the mourners pass between the lines, guests recite a traditional blessing.
