THE WAY IT SHOULD BE
It should be, first and foremost, about service. It should be personalized and compassionate. It should be about commitment. It should be from people who work and live right here, in our community. It should be about having a service where you want it: chapel, synagogue, or graveside. It should be about being able to pre-plan for your family. It should be about the way you want to mourn.
In August 1997, David Jacobson founded Chicago Jewish Funerals because he believed there was a need to provide a service that was attentive to the needs of the bereaved as it was to the strong traditions of the Jewish people.
Our team of dedicated, compassionate funeral directors live and work in the community. Read their profiles and and learn about their commitment.
Chicago Jewish Funerals works with families at the most vulnerable time in their life. This is both a responsibility and an honor we take very seriously. In this section we detail the special resources we make available to families and identify the many community resources that are related to our work.
