Enrollment Standards

The United Hebrew Community of New York follows the tenets of Orthodox Judaism.

Every person of the Jewish faith, k’halacha, can join.

Simplicity and affordable funeral expenses are traditionally aspired to and practiced.

Respect for the deceased is, of course, a given standard that has been proven

throughout millennia to bring comfort to those they leave behind.

All families, regardless of their available finances, are offered the opportunity to take pride in the beauty and dignity of a true Jewish funeral without unnecessary added costs.

Our organization is proud that we, for more than 120 Years, have served the Jewish community

during family tragedies and personal loss while upholding these standards.


We understand that no two people nor families have the exact same needs or problems yet,

we try to meet as best as we can, everyone’s expectations.
