bereavement conferences
Plaza Jewish is pleased to have been a primary sponsor of 22 bereavement conferences. We understand that
the funeral is not the end of the grieving process — it is just the beginning. And as the funeral chapel of the
New York Jewish community we believe it is incumbent upon us to explore these issues with the public .
