Long Island's Oldest Synagogue. Renewed and Reinvigorated.

Deaths

When a loved one dies, there are many decisions that must be made immediately.  Members of our congregation should contact Rabbi Geffen on his cell phone at 646.460.1713.  He will guide you through the process of funeral preparations and mourning.

Funerals should be scheduled as soon as possible after a death, preferably within 24 hours.

Please consult our newly published pamphlet, A Time to Mourn: A Guide to Planning a Funeral and to Ways of Mourning 

Our Nichum Aveilim (Comforting Mourners) team is ready to help organize services for the Shiva house and to provide a meal of consolation. 

Temple's cemetery has a limited number of plots available for purchase by (and for) Temple members.  Please contact Howard Chwatsky at 631-725-4523, or [email protected].  Plots may also be available for purchase at Independent Jewish Cemetery in Sag Harbor.
