Jewish funeral traditions

Compassion is the most important word, and understanding the true meaning of the word compassion, as it relates to individual needs, is what has made Gutterman and Musicant a source of support since 1892.

Specializing in serving the Jewish community in and around Hackensack, we understand the customs and religious significance associated with Jewish funeral tradition. It is our unwavering commitment to you and your family to plan and produce your loved one's memorial in accordance with the Jewish funeral and burial customs that are important to you.

Planning ahead

At the time of loss, the funeral arrangement details and associated expenses can be overwhelming.

By preparing your arrangements personally, you also ensure your wishes are met to your specifications. Our funeral directors specialize in this service and are here to discuss your options should you wish to do so in advance.

Ratings & Reviews

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.

"Sherry was exceptional at explaining everything to our 90 year old Aunt who had just lost her brother. Aunt Carmen had no idea that our Uncle had converted to Judaism many years ago. Sherry explained everything that had transpired with the service and the rituals involved in such a way that my Aunt was impressed and at peace. She made the whole ceremony inclusive for her and really did an amazing job at consoling and making her feel at ease."
