We at Schwartz Brothers-Jeffer Memorial Chapels understand that a Jewish funeral is a modest, solemn religious service designed to honor the dead and provide support to the family and friends of the person who has passed. Contemporary Jewish families are also finding ways to blend Jewish tradition with their modern lifestyles. Our funeral directors know how to help you do both and work with all sects of the Jewish faith: Orthodox, Conservative and Reformed.

Schwartz Brothers-Jeffer Memorial Chapels is among the larger Jewish-specialty funeral home in Queens, and we have plenty of parking. Our 2-story building is filled with natural light and has 2 large chapels with traditional pews. One seats 350; the other seats 175.

As you would expect from a funeral home that specialized in Jewish traditions, we have a tahara room for the ritual preparation of bodies and a large Kohanim building for those whose beliefs dictate that they not be under the same roof as their deceased loved one. Closed-circuit television allows those guests to see and hear the service without going into the building.


The staff at Schwartz Brothers-Jeffer Memorial Chapels is an exceptional group of people with a wealth of experience providing compassionate care to people of all walks of life. We treat the funeral home as if it were our personal home—and we treat the people who come here as if they were our own family members. Our goal is to provide a personalized funeral or memorial service for everyone we serve. We take the time to listen and plan something truly special to celebrate a life.

We are always here for you—only a phone call away. Please reach out if you need immediate help planning a funeral or would like more information on planning a funeral ahead of time.


Schwartz Brothers-Jeffer Memorial Chapels shares an address with Parkside Memorial Chapels. Both are fine operations specializing in Jewish funeral services, and both are members of the Dignity Memorial® network. When you choose any of the funeral homes located at 114-03 Queens Blvd., you get the compassionate care you expect from a Forest Hills-operated funeral home and the benefits you deserve from North America’s largest network of funeral and cemetery service providers.
