Stanetsky Memorial Chapel in Brookline, Massachusetts, specializes in serving and meeting the needs of the Jewish community. Responsibly conducting every funeral service with reverence, beauty and dignity for over 100 years, Stanetsky Memorial Chapels have earned a reputation for providing compassionate service to families at their time of need.
Our team of experienced funeral professionals are mindful of every need, faithful in observance of every wish and watchful of every detail. We offer reassuring guidance for those entrusted with making final arrangements and are an invaluable resource to those unfamiliar with Jewish burial customs.
In keeping with Jewish tradition, the K'vurah (burial) should be as expedient as possible. We are able to accommodate these immediate needs and are familiar with the religious customs that express the dignity and sanctity of a Jewish funeral. Taharah (purification) is provided by well-known Massachusetts Chevra Kaddisha (holy society). In addition, arrangements for a shemira (watching) are made at a family's request, and cotton or hand-sewn linen tachrichim (burial garment) are available. A large selection of oron (caskets) are guaranteed free of metal and have been manufactured in a facility that does not operate on the Sabbath. We also provide families with kriah ribbons, yahrzeit calendars, shiva benches and shiva candles.
For those unaffiliated with a synagogue, our funeral directors work closely with orthodox, conservative and reform rabbis who conduct dignified chapel and graveside services that console the family and honor the deceased.
