When a loved one passes away, it can be very hard to deal with every responsibility that comes your way. It’s hard enough to deal with the grief and loss, but you also want to make sure your loved one is cared for and gets the honor and final services they deserve. When you work with a Jewish funeral home in Monroe, NJ such as Mount Sinai Memorial Chapels you get the advice and support you need to ensure your loved one is well cared for and that your family is able to say goodbye in the proper manner.
If you’re looking for a funeral home to help you with such arrangements at the moment, you will first want to think about the location of the facilities. If you’re anticipating having a large service for your loved one, you need a facility that can handle a bigger number. If you want just family and close friends, it’s a nice idea to have a space that is small and intimate. The space can make the funeral feel just right for whoever you decide to invite, and our facilities were designed with flexibility in mind, and we can handle just about any size service.
Once you know where you are going to have the service, it’s also a good idea to put a budget together. It’s hard to put together an accurate budget if you don’t know the basic costs. We are always available to discuss options and costs, with no obligation. Having a list of rates can help you figure out what you need and what you want for your loved one and see how that fits into your budget as a whole.
Many people have a shiva meal after the funeral takes place so their family can spend more time together. Keep in mind that it doesn’t have to be elaborate. It doesn’t even have to cost anything at all. You could do it potluck style or you could allow a community group to organize it for you in honor of your loved one. You’ll want to support your family and having a reception after the services are over is a nice way to catch up, share memories, and figure out how to move forward together.
