The variety and quality of services we offer makes our funeral home a wise choice for you and your family. Each step, starting with our first meeting—through memorial service—and finally the funeral itself, is handled with dignity and decorum. At Louis Suburban Chapel, every detail is as significant as the entire process, and your every request is handled with ultimate care.
 
We assist families with all things that are needed at this most difficult time. These include removal of the deceased wherever the death has occurred, selecting a casket, taking care of the logistics and paperwork, filing for permits and Death Certificate, and sending an obituary to the local papers, if wanted by the family. If requested, our services may also include assisting you with purchasing a plot and monument, arranging limousine transportation for the family or a private bus for friends, and other incidentals.
 
Louis Suburban Chapel offers what is known as a Traditional Jewish Service. The deceased is the focal point of the funeral service. The presence of the deceased often brings comfort, when it's time to say goodbye. The family decides whether or not the body is to be accessible to the mourners, or whether the casket shall be open, or closed. The expressed wishes of the deceased, as well as his or her family, determine the best way to proceed with the funeral.
 
For the Russian-Jewish community, we can assist in providing the services of a Russian-speaking rabbi.

What Is a Traditional Jewish Funeral Service?
 
Traditionally, Jewish Funeral Service is officiated by a rabbi in the presence of family and friends.
 
With the body of the deceased present, prayers are read and the eulogies are made under the direction of a rabbi. A traditional service usually takes place at the funeral home. 
 
After the service takes place, the deceased is transported to the cemetery in a hearse, usually accompanied by a procession of family and friends in their cars. Upon reaching the destination, a short burial ceremony takes place, and the deceased is laid to rest.
