ABOUT US

We began as a promise

We began as a promise to the Jewish community. You and your family deserve a highly personal funeral service that respects your wishes and the strong traditions of the Jewish people.

Since 1997, Chicago Jewish Funerals has honored this promise. We provide compassionate, concierge-level service with a special sensitivity to Jewish customs and traditions. Day after day, season after season, year after year, people come to us because they know we will be there for them.

Independence matters

One of the important reasons why we can provide such attentive service is that Chicago Jewish Funerals is independently owned. In fact, we are the leading independently-owned, full service Jewish funeral home in the Chicagoland area. We are neither affiliated with, nor a subsidiary of, any national funeral corporation. Our independence allows us to help families arrange a funeral that best meets their needs and responds to specific requests and traditions.

Life-affirming work

Today, Chicago Jewish Funerals has become a trusted family tradition. We care for the whole family throughout the funeral process and beyond. The lessons we learn from the families we serve inspires so much of what we do – supporting congregations, education programs, even Little League teams – life-affirming community events that instill our lives with hope, connection, and, at times, a little laughter.

We serve the entire Chicagoland area with locations in Buffalo Grove and from our newest chapel in Skokie.

Independent. Jewish Owned. Since 1997.
