For over a century, Sherman’s Flatbush Memorial Chapel has been serving families in our community in need of a Brooklyn funeral home. Our Jewish funeral home has helped hundreds of families say goodbye over the years. These experiences have helped build us into one of the leading funeral homes in Brooklyn.
The establishment of this service organization by the late WILLIAM SHERMAN, who was a veritable pioneer among Jewish Funeral Directors, continued to grow under the incomparable guidance of his son, JOSEPH SHERMAN, who left his own special imprint on SHERMAN’S. He too was able to pass on this family legacy to another generation. ARNOLD E. SHERMAN and his son faithfully guided SHERMAN’S for decades until the time of his passing. When ARNOLD left this world, he knew that his son JOSEPH, who had worked by his side for many years, would continue the sacred family tradition. JOSEPH SHERMAN now carries the responsibility passed on from generation to generation.
We have always been a family owned funeral home and taken great pride in helping other families say goodbye to their loved ones. Over the past century, our family has helped trained one another to continue to offer an unparalleled quality of service to others during their time of need. As each new generation has taken over control of our funeral home, they have added their own unique touch and ideas to the funeral home to better serve the Jewish Community of Greater New York.
It is obvious that the evolution of this organization had undergone many changes within the four generations. However, the one thing we will not change is our personal care and concern for every family so that we can, in our way help mitigate the pain during this period.
Our faith has always been important to us. Being one of the few Jewish funeral homes in Brooklyn means we understand the importance of a Jewish funeral and offer a specialty service that many others do not. We are proud of our heritage and the legacy that our family has built and continued to add to over the years. We hope that the future generations of our family will continue to operate our Brooklyn funeral home learning from our experiences and continue to better serve families in Brooklyn.
It is a tradition with SHERMAN'S FLATBUSH MEMORIAL CHAPEL, INC. to be prepared to serve day and night, regardless of circumstances. Our staff is especially trained to be courteous, thoughtful, and discreet in the arrangement and conduct of a funeral and is instructed to give completely of itself to the needs of each family.
