“You Shall Love Your Neighbor As Yourself” (Leviticus 19:18)
I know firsthand how much it costs to be Jewish in South Florida.
I am used to paying more for essentially everything – food, education, and housing.
Why Should Jews Pay More To Die?
It should not cost more to bury a Jew than a Christian or agnostic.
In fact, I think a Jewish funeral should cost less than a non-Jewish funeral.
After all, the costs relating to a Jewish burial are less than any other religion. A traditional Jewish casket (a plain pine box) is the least expensive casket produced. Traditional Jewish burial does not include embalming and traditional Jewish burial should not include a vault or other expensive and unneeded merchandise.
So, logically, Jewish burial should be less expensive than that of any other major religion.
Why In South Florida Is A Jewish Funeral So Expensive?
It’s because South Florida Jewish cemeteries and funeral homes are dominated by “big funeral” companies that are controlled by out-of-state non-Jewish interests that take advantage of the local Jewish community.
These large funeral companies are owned and controlled by “Wall Street” investors who demand Wall Street-sized profits. These profits are earned on the backs of local families that don’t know they have a choice and can pay less and receive more.
Kronish Funeral Services is the best alternative to the large Wall Street-controlled companies. We are locally owned and controlled and do not believe the death of one of our neighbors is a business opportunity to be exploited.
Our staff is all local residents and while we are in the business of making profits (that is how we support our families), we also charge approximately 50% less than the large corporate competitors.
That means at Kronish Funeral Services, Kosher does not cost more – Kosher costs less.
