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.

"Carl Goldman was an excellent facilitator and Cory Kedeckel, the funeral director , was easy to reach and easy to speak to and very honest. I would strongly, strongly recommend doing as much as possible ahead of time, the 'pre-need' option. There are just so many details to deal with at the time of death of some one dear to you that is is best to get as many done well beforehand."

"I can't say enough about the warmth and professionalism of the Stanetsky staff. I felt that they were totally 'in synch' with my needs; they listened well and made themselves available when I needed them. My father's death was unexpected. The staff helped me sort through every detail: promptly, with courtesy and warmth. I also felt that the prices charged for their services and funeral were very reasonable. I now understand, from personal experience, why Stanetsky's has been my family's choice."

"When my father passed away in 2009 Stanetsky was extremely helpful during that hard time. We turned to them again when my mother passed away this month at age 93. Though we were not a high-paying customer, Stanetsky's staff and funeral director treated my mom and us with the utmost consideration, warmth, courtesy, professionalism and, as their name states, with dignity."
