A caring Jewish funeral provider

Front exterior building and signage at Schwartz Brothers-Jeffer Memorial ChapelWe at Schwartz Brothers-Jeffer 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.

Schwartz Brothers-Jeffer Memorial Chapels is among the larger Jewish-specialty funeral home in Queens, and we have plenty of parking. Our 2-story building is filled with natural light and has 2 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 the ritual preparation of bodies 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.

Verified Customer Reviews

Since 2005, many of our customers have taken the time to tell us how we did each year via our Voice of the Customer program. Our star ratings and comments from families come directly from these surveys.

"The death of a loved one can be indescribably painful. The unavoidable interactions with non-responsive, inattentive doctors, lawyers and administrators only add insult to injury. The comforting exception during this difficult period was Eric Anderson at Schwartz Bros. I never had to call Eric twice to reach him. He was consistently sympathetic, professional and reassuringly informed and competent. Everything he handled proceeded smoothly and as promised. 10 out of 10."

"The Funeral Manager, Doug Familia and Staff were professional, caring, courteous and helpful. Care was given to every detail which included providing the same Rabbi who officiated at our father's funeral and who we requested to be at mom's funeral, if he was still available. The staff made that possible for us. I am very satisfied with the services Schwartz Brothers-Jeffer Memorial provided us and would definitely use them again and refer them to family and friends."
