Selecting Funeral Products

Now that you made the vital decision regarding burial or cremation for your loved one, you need to choose the funeral products involved with your choice.

When you choose burial, you’ll need to select a casket, and burial vault.  If your preference was cremation, then you'll want to browse our selection of cremation containers and urns.

Caskets

Commonly, funeral homes have a number of caskets that you can choose from, including ones made from various woods and metals. We provide "Kosher" as well as "non-Kosher" caskets.

Burial Vaults

Outer burial vaults are usually required by a cemetery to prevent the settling of the grave site, and to facilitate grounds maintenance. Also, many families choose to protect the casket and safeguard their loved one’s remains through the purchase of a burial vault that exceeds cemetery regulations.

Burial vaults range from the casket protector or grave liner,  which serves as basic protection and is required by some cemeteries to a premium Bronze vault.

Cremation Vaults

Basically, a cremation vault acts to protect the urn. If you've chosen to inter a loved one's ashes on the grounds of a cemetery, you'll want to consider the purchase of a cremation vault. The final decision you make will depend on whether you'll plan an in-ground burial (called an "inurnment"), or intend placing the urn in a mausoleum or columbarium.

Cremation Urns

After cremation occurs, the remains will be returned to your family in a relatively-ordinary, temporary container. This container is perfect for keeping the cremated remains for a short time, prior to a scattering ceremony. However, there are many reasons to purchase a more permanent, more elegant cremation urn. These include:

  • If you plan to have a memorial service where the cremated remains will be present
  • If you plan to inter the remains in a columbarium niche where the urn will be visible
  • If you wish to keep the cremated remains in a place of honor at home

Urns are made of numerous materials generally in categories of hardwood, metal or stone. We also offer a selection of unique, temporary urns,and biodegradable urns for those selecting scattering at sea. 

We offer a wide range of urns, in all price ranges.
 

Bringing Your Loved One’s Personality into the Service

The funeral or memorial service you plan for a loved one can be as personal as you wish it to be. Many families find great comfort in turning their thoughts inward for a time, to consider the personality, interests, and achievements of their loved one. Your Funeral Director will ask you to speak to the Rabbi about your loved one. You can mention some of the following:

  • Personal characteristics
  • Passions, interests, and hobbies
  • Lifetime Achievements
