Built in 1970, Weinstein & Piser Funeral Home features 2 modern chapels. Sinai, our larger chapel, seats up to 450 guests. Masada, our more intimate chapel, seats approximately 250. Both offer modern audio and video technology.

A family gathering room directly off the Sinai chapel provides a quiet place of remembrance before or after services. We also offer mechitzah seating for funeral and prayer services.

Each bronze leaf represents the memory of a departed loved one. Proceeds from these memorials benefit Keshet, a Northbrook non-profit that assists Chicago-area children and adults with intellectual challenges.

Convenient Chicago funeral home

Our location in North Shore is close to many Chicago-area synagogues. In fact, 4 synagogues are less than 4 miles away from Weinstein & Piser Funeral Home: Ezra-Habonim, Niles Township Jewish Congregation; Beth Hillel Congregation B'nai Emunah; Beth Hamedrosh Hagadol Kesser; and Kehilat Chovevei Tzion. We also have ample parking in a private lot on the side of our building.

Losing a loved one is an emotional and difficult experience, and we are committed to providing compassionate, professional and personal service. For us, there is no greater responsibility than preserving and honoring the legacy of a life. Please give us a call for any reason at all. We are available 24/7.


In 2015, 2 prominent Chicago-area funeral homes—Weinstein Brothers and Piser Funeral Chapels—joined to form Weinstein & Piser Funeral Homes. Both of the firms are more than a century old and have fascinating histories. We’ll start with the story behind Weinstein Brothers and then go into more detail about Piser Funeral Chapels.

The history of the Weinstein Brothers funeral firm

In the 1890s, Louis and Jacob Weinstein founded Weinstein Brothers in Chicago. Louis’s son Myron joined the company soon after and expanded the business, adding a North Side branch in 1937.

As the business continued to grow, Myron and his son Joel moved to the North Shore suburb of Wilmette and opened a state-of-the-art facility in 1970.

The history of Piser Funeral Chapels

Sam Piser also believed in providing honest, caring and professional service and, in 1916, began offering funeral care to the Jewish immigrant community in Chicago. Through the addition of several other funeral companies, Piser Funeral Chapels became one of the preeminent funeral providers serving Chicagoland.

Following in the footsteps of his forefathers, Alan Yaffe—our community development representative—is the third generation of the Piser family to serve our community’s families.

The funeral firms join together

Lobby at Weinstein & Piser Funeral HomeIn 2015, Weinstein Brothers and Piser Funeral Chapels joined together and, just as in 1890, we continue our tradition of compassion and high standards of service. Today, we are a member of the Dignity Memorial® network of funeral, cremation and cemetery service providers.

Funeral services for veterans and public servants

Every day, brave men and women risk their lives to defend our freedom—and we can’t thank them enough. At Weinstein & Piser Funeral Home, we are honored to serve veterans and military families. Our funeral directors are experienced in providing military funeral honors for veterans and work with all branches of the U.S. armed services. And as a participant of the Dignity Memorial® Homeless Veterans Burial Program, we provide funeral services to homeless and indigent veterans at no cost.

We also recognize the courageous public servants who keep us safe. Through the Dignity Memorial Public Servants Program, we provide free funeral services to police officers, law enforcement officials, paramedics and other public servants who fall in the line of duty. The program also offers extended counseling services to family members and the opportunity to create an internet tribute.

Committed to the North Shore community

In addition to serving families through our funeral home, the dedicated team at Weinstein & Piser Funeral Home is involved in many community organizations around the North Shore area.

For more than 20 years, we have worked with Keshet, a non-profit organization in Northbrook that assists Chicago-area children and adults with intellectual challenges. Through a program called Keshet Gadol, we help bridge the gap that exists in community-based programs serving adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. We provide jobs and vocational training at our funeral home for those in this program. Participants help with various tasks such as preparing folder presentations for families.

Team members are also involved with B’nai Brith International and B’nai Brith Sports Lodge, the Jewish United Fund’s Young Leadership Division, and are board members of their synagogues.

Annual events

To complement our full range of funeral services, Weinstein & Piser Funeral Home extends an invitation to all families to join us for our annual community events.

On Veterans Day, we work with local cemeteries to honor war veterans. Our commitment to those who have served isn’t confined to one day; we also host a monthly meeting for veterans at our funeral home complete with speakers and refreshments. If you are interested in attending, please contact us for more information on dates and times.

Typically held in June or July, our Annual Remembrance Day event is an opportunity for families to join us as we celebrate the lives of those we've lost throughout the year. This is also a chance for families to unite and gain a sense of peace from the healing power of community. We invite community leaders and rabbis from area synagogues to join us as well. Guests recite psalms and enjoy refreshments after the service.

Weinstein & Piser Funeral Home welcomes everyone to enjoy these events and others throughout the year.
