As we face the end of life, there are many difficult decisions to be made. One thing is certain. It is best to make these decisions when you are healthy and strong. Not only will your values be respected, but those close to you will feel gratified knowing that they are honoring your wishes. And when you make those arrangements in advance, you alleviate all of that pain and anguish that the most important people to you are going to have to take care of on your behalf. Our role is to also provide for your spiritual needs. This includes planning for burial in consonance with Jewish tradition.
Congregation B’nai Israel has a dedicated section at Star of David in North Lauderdale. Star of David (pictured right) is a modern, clean facility that has easily accessible plots, peaceful water, and paved walkways. It also allows upright headstones (while others only allow markers). The North Lauderdale location provides a convenient location for those who may be traveling in from local airports. Because we have purchased these plots as a group, we are able to offer our members and their families a discounted rate. Services may be held at CBI or at the Star of David Funeral Chapel.
