The Jewish Funeral and Mourning

Kronish Funeral Services

There is a wide divergence in the Jewish funeral practices and beliefs of those who identify themselves as Jews.

Kronish Funeral Services will ensure that each family has access to any information that could be helpful in deciding on the arrangements that best suit its needs; that the information is presented in an objective manner without any sales pressure; and that the arrangements selected are carried out with respect and dignity.

The Jewish Traditions

As a funeral service provider which serves all of the Jewish denominations from the most Orthodox to the most liberal, we are dedicated to the principle that we will not attempt to impose any particular ritual or observance on any family nor will we attempt to dissuade any family from any practice that is accepted by any of the denominations. We will make available detailed information about the preferences of particular rabbis or congregations so that any family that is uncertain about observance can feel reassured about their choice of arrangements

Common Characteristics

Despite differences in the degree of ritual observance, all Jewish funerals share certain basic characteristics that stem from our common belief in the sanctity and equality of all human life. Because a Jewish funeral has profound religious significance, Jewish funerals avoid ostentation; family and visitors reflect in dress and deportment the solemnity of the occasion; embalming and viewing are avoided; music and flowers are rarely used, and interment takes place as soon as possible after death.

Traditions Vary

Jewish funerals conducted by more liberal Jewish denominations may differ in one or more respects from the foregoing traditional rituals. Other less traditional practices include burial in the deceased’s own clothing, burial in a mausoleum and a more elaborate funeral service including the use of music.
