Jewish traditions

Beit Shalom Chapel at Stanetsky Memorial Chapel 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 (ritual washing in our mikveh) is provided by the Greater Boston Chevra Kadisha (holy society). In addition, arrangements for a shomer (a watchman) are made at a family's request, and cotton or hand-sewn linen tachrichim (burial shroud) 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 Shabbat. 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 from our community who conduct dignified chapel and graveside services that console the family and honor the deceased.

"The entire team at Stanetsky's, under the direction of Linda Hirschberg, did an absolutely perfect job. I'm not sure the entire process could have gone any more smoothly and her follow up was on point the whole time. Stanetsky's is extremely fortunate to have someone as professional as Linda. Her expertise was not only excellent, but she has that intangible ability to make people feel special. That did not go unnoticed and was greatly appreciated."

"The phrase 'very unique' should be edited out. Language authorities say that there are no degrees of uniqueness, technicalities aside."

"Planning my mother's funeral at a distance was a daunting task, but all the team members at Stanetsky Memorial Chapel, were just exceptionally supportive. Everyone I dealt with was knowledgeable, respectful, and very appreciative of what I was going through. They were very clear about the process, and they never applied pressure in terms of casket choice or other additions, they presented the options and let me make my choices. I felt my family was in capable hands during a very difficult time."
