Proud of being an all inclusive Jewish funeral home


Dear community, our hearts and thoughts are with all of you during these difficult and challenging times. Chicago Jewish Funerals is honored, privileged and humbled to have served our community for more than two decades.  We know the importance of safely caring for anyone arranging or attending a funeral service.  As all of us are forced make adjustments during the COVID-19 pandemic, we are doing our best to allow families to safely and respectfully participate in the funeral customs and rituals of our people.

As we transition into the next recovery Phase of COVID-19, Chicago Jewish Funerals will once again be able to offer chapel services in our Skokie and Buffalo Grove funeral homes.

The following guidelines will be in place, as per the State of Illinois as of October 31, 2020:

Chapel services will be limited to 10 guests.

All attendees must be masked and gloved – without exception.

Chicago Jewish Funerals will supply masks and gloves to all attendees.

All speakers, including clergy, must continue to wear masks and gloves even while at the podium.

Chicago Jewish Funerals is taking special precautions and procedures to routinely disinfect and clean all areas of the funeral home.

Social distancing is still in effect at all times.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.
