New COVID-19 Protocol
The dedication ceremony, often called an “unveiling” or Hakamat Matzeivah (raising the stone) is held after a funeral. (No stone is placed on the grave at the time of burial.) This is a special time for family and friends to remember their loved one. This ceremony may be held any time after 30 days of burial and usually before a year has passed.
Chicago Jewish Funerals provides a special Dedication Ceremony Program for the families we serve.
- Complete Dedication Ceremony Service setup which includes:
- A minimum of six chairs
