We are here for you.That may seem like a simple and obvious statement, but it is all too uncommon. We are not like other funeral chapels. Not in philosophy, not in practice. We are dedicated to the belief that the process of grief is not a business proposition but rather an emotional, human passage to be treated with dignity and conscience. That is our sole motivation. We are not like others, nor do we strive to be. We promise to take you through this difficult time with care, with sensitivity, and with thoughtfulness. We do not hurry decisions. We do not feel there is a relationship between what is spent and what has been lost. There is only what is right for you and your family. We encourage you to decide what your own approach and values dictate, what makes you comfortable, what your loved one would have wanted, and to follow that guidance.

The Cost Advantage of Using Plaza

A traditional Jewish funeral at community-owned Plaza costs $5,240.00. This compares to a cost of at least $8,410.00 (over 60% more) at Riverside Memorial Chapel and $15,245 (over 195% more) at Frank Campbell Funeral Home, the Manhattan chapels operated by Service Corporation International, a publicly traded corporation that owns more than 2,000 funeral homes.

As a service to the community, we are proud to include the ‘Graceful Exits Packet‘, an invaluable collection of documents that can be downloaded, printed and given to your next of Kin.
