Bergen Jewish Chapel in Oradell and Teaneck, New Jersey

Bergen Jewish Chapel is pleased to announce a new online funeral service arrangement process. This simplified process helps to relieve the stress of dealing with end-of-life issues…eliminating the need to visit a funeral home.  

This new concept is a web-based funeral arrangement process.  Families have the ability to select their desired services and merchandise as well as to provide all necessary vital statistical information.

“We understand and are very empathetic to families wishing to eliminate the necessity of a face to face meeting at the funeral home,” said Daniel Leber, owner and Manager of Bergen Jewish Chapel. “Our process has been well received by the Jewish Community especially those who are Non Affiliated, Reform, and Liberal.”  

Bergen Jewish Chapel’s online service provides the ability to meet a loved ones’ needs and traditions while continuing to benefit from our commitment to personal attention. Families who prefer to meet with our experienced professionals are welcome to do so at our Volk Leber affiliated locations at 789 Teaneck Rd. Teaneck or at 268 Kinderkamack Rd., Oradell.

Simplifying Funeral Arrangements

 

Jewish funeral service rituals and practices have traditionally followed a strong set of customs and beliefs which are based on the Torah. Although these beliefs remain important in the Orthodox and Conservative Jewish cultures, some of the traditional customs have been modified under Reform Judaism.

The Jewish people hold the philosophy that one should embrace life while accepting the inevitability of death. The emphasis of Judaism concerns how one’s life should be lived. It does not specifically define an afterlife. However, it is implied that leading a praiseworthy life will prepare one for what comes after life.

At Bergen Jewish Chapel, we help families through the difficult challenge of losing a loved one and assist to simplify the process with the priority of comfort and privacy for the family.
