At Sherman’s Flatbush Memorial Chapel, we believe that providing the best funeral services is about giving the families we serve the variety of choice. When it comes to caskets in particular, we are pleased to offer a large selection of traditional Jewish caskets and coffins to meet your needs. All our Jewish caskets are manufactured with wooden dowels, glue and are free of metal.
For families that are looking to plan a traditional funeral, we also have a great selection of Jewish monuments. Our Jewish casket and coffin options have been hand-selected by our knowledgeable and compassionate funeral home staff in order to provide the best range of products that meet both the need for quality and affordability that is reflected in the broad requirements of the families we serve. Hand crafted like fine furniture, each wooden Jewish casket and coffin has it's own unique graining pattern. The natural warmth and beauty of wood is available in a variety of types and species. The interior material of a wood casket is typically either velvet or crepe.
In order to best serve families at our Jewish funeral home in Midwood, we believe in offering all of the services, options and guidance required to help reduce the challenges associated with losing a loved one and planning a funeral. Below you will find our selection of Jewish caskets with images and additional information. We invite you to explore our catalogue and hope that you are able to find what it is you are looking for.

The classification "hardwood" simply means that the wood comes from a leaf-bearing tree. "Softwood" comes from the needle or cone-bearing trees. Therefore, designation as a hardwood is not determined solely by the consistency or surface hardness of the wood itself, but the species of the tree from which it came. The cost of each casket can vary depending on species, finish and interior. When making such an important decision, we believe it is important to have all of the necessary information in order to make an educated choice.
