Where to Begin

When the death of a loved one occurs, please contact Sinai Chapels at 718.445.0300.

The Details

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. For the convenience of your family, our building is staffed and operates twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year.

Are you affiliated with a Synagogue?

Please contact your Rabbi to inform them of the death of your loved one.

Did you make a preneed arrangement with Sinai Chapels?

When you contact Sinai Chapels, please have your preneed contract number ready to provide to the funeral director. If you’re not sure what your contract number is, we are here to assist you.

Do you belong to a Society?

Please call Sinai Chapels at 718.445.0300 before reaching out to your Society.

The Funeral Service

Your Rabbi will assist with arrangements, answer questions related to Jewish funeral practices and tradition, as well as provide overall support and guidance during this stressful time. Decisions regarding the funeral service should be made jointly with your Rabbi and Sinai Chapels. After the service details are confirmed with the Rabbi and funeral director, they may be shared with family, friends, and others. Our staff will handle all the details associated with the funeral, whether the services are held in the chapel, at the graveside, or at another location. We also work closely with the Chevra Kadisha to ensure traditional Jewish preparation. One phone call to our staff removes the burden of your family having to make multiple, detail-oriented calls.
