The death of a loved one is a critical moment in the life of an individual or family. Our clergy and staff are committed to assisting families through the process of death, burial, mourning and funeral preparation. Our clergy and staff will help you through difficult times of loss including the process of shiva (the week and religious services after the funeral service), and the year of mourning (yahrzeit) observances. We are also here to help guide your family toward healing in whatever ways during your time of need..

Additionally, our clergy is also available for counseling and guidance if you or someone you love is suffering from a terminal illness, or in need of a hospital visit.
