Assisting All Jewish Families

Founded, owned and operated by the Resnick family, Sinai Chapels provide each family with attentive, quality and compassionate service. We are staffed and operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year.

We will coordinate all the funeral details with any congregation, burial society, landsmanschaft, or organization where you are a member. We will also work to secure all necessary permits, signatures, and benefits to which you are entitled.

Sinai Chapels is uniquely equipped to professionally assist all Jewish families, from the most meticulously halachically observant to the completely secular. We specialize in assisting families in creating a service that includes the observances and rituals most appropriate for them and their loved ones, whether in our chapels, at the graveside or in other locations.
