Sherman’s Flatbush Memorial Chapel has been helping Jewish families in Brooklyn for over a century. At Sherman’s we continually try to be the ideal modern day Jewish funeral home. This means focusing on innovation and changing societal demands.
1) Experts in Planning Jewish Funerals
Planning a funeral is tough. Planning a Jewish funeral is even more difficult, and that is why we are here. A traditional Jewish funeral incorporates specific customs and traditions. Depending on how traditional you would like the ceremony to be, we will ensure the funeral service adheres to the Jewish customs and traditions that you wish. Oftentimes the deceased wanted a very traditional Jewish funeral, but his/her children are unfamiliar with the Jewish practices. We sit down with the family and make sure everyone understands the process and what needs to be done.
Our Jewish funeral home is one of the most flexible in all of New York City. Although we are a Jewish funeral home, we only execute on the Jewish traditions that you would like. Unlike other Jewish funeral homes, we do not require you to follow all Jewish funeral practices.
3) Compassion & Continual Support
We are by your side from the minute you call us to well after the funeral has ended. Most Jewish funeral homes focus solely on planning and executing a funeral service on behalf of the deceased. We go beyond that duty – we also focus on providing the support that grieving families need. We see people struggle with losing a loved one all the time, and therefore we know exactly what families need to get through the grief process.
4) A Proud Family Business
The ownership of our Jewish funeral home has been passed down four generations. The Sherman name has become synonymous with high quality funeral services. Nowadays many funeral homes are being bought by large conglomerates, and in the process the funeral home loses the personal touch it provides families. We believe this personal touch is critical in providing a beautiful funeral service.
