About

The Goldstein, Sherman and Yassky families know the Jewish community. As owners of Parkside Memorial Chapels, they provided comfort and support to Jewish families for more than 70 years. Today, Parkside Memorial Chapels is part of the Dignity Memorial® network, which is committed to continuing to exceed expectations and deliver a level of service that is unmatched anywhere.

Located on Queens Boulevard in Forest Hills, near Flushing Meadows Corona Park and several cemeteries, Parkside Memorial Chapels is a warm, comfortable place to plan a funeral. From the moment you walk into the bright, open foyer you feel welcome here. An understanding member of our compassionate team greets every guest at the door, and we treat you like our friend and neighbor.

Though Parkside Memorial Chapels specializes in the traditions of Jewish families, we provide funeral, memorial, cremation and burial services for people of all cultures, faiths and backgrounds.

A caring Jewish funeral provider

We at Parkside Memorial Chapels understand that a Jewish funeral is a modest, solemn religious service designed to honor the dead and provide support to the family and friends of the person who has passed. Contemporary Jewish families are also finding ways to blend Jewish tradition with their modern lifestyles. Our funeral directors know how to help you do both and work with all sects of the Jewish faith: Orthodox, Conservative and Reformed.

Parkside Memorial Chapels is among the larger Jewish-specialty funeral home in Queens, and we have plenty of parking. Our two-story building is filled with natural light and has two large chapels with traditional pews. One seats 350; the other seats 175.

As you would expect from a funeral home that specialized in Jewish traditions, we have a tahara room for ritual washing and a large kohanim building for those whose beliefs dictate that they not be under the same roof as their deceased loved one. Closed-circuit television allows those guests to see and hear the service without going into the building. We can also arrange for a shomer, and kosher catering is not a problem.

Parkside Memorial Chapels also offers direct immediate burial and can arrange for burial in Israel.
