Pre-Planning a Funeral

Funerals are the one life event we know will occur, yet we are reluctant to plan for them.

When the time does come to plan for a funeral, families can be in a vulnerable state of mind – emotionally stressed, grief stricken, compromised. Many decisions need to be made in a very short period of time. And while the funeral directors at Chicago Jewish Funerals offer extraordinary experience and support to help guide our families, we know it can be easier on everyone, if a funeral has been pre-arranged.

Pre-planning your funeral is a real gift for the people you love. They will have clear direction and information on your funeral arrangements including organization of important documents, casket selection, type of service, and burial location.

The process is simple. You can make arrangements in your home or at one of our locations. One of our Pre-planning professionals will guide you through a process to help you make the best decisions that are meaningful, appropriate and affordable.

We also can provide you with an extremely helpful pamphlet: Respect My Wishes, a guide for my loved ones. Here we provide an outline of information to provide loved ones should you fall seriously ill and cannot express your last wishes. Click here to download a copy.
