Skokie, IL 60077
Our Skokie office was opened in August 2011 directly across from Chicago Jewish Funerals new $7,000,000+ funeral home that opened the same month. We openly tell our families that our office rent including utilities, maintenance and real estate taxes is $800 a month in contrast to what we estimate to be well over $75,000 a month in debt service, utilities, maintenance and real estate taxes across the street.
By using Mitzvah Memorial funerals, families that choose graveside services Synagogue service, or services from other indoor facilities can do so without having to pay for the overhead of a funeral palace!
Several Synagogues are now available to non-affiliated families at very reasonable rental fees (typically $500). Many of these Synagogues offer both chapels and sanctuaries that typically seat approximately 100 people and over 500 people respectively. Parking at these Synagogues is typically much better than at funeral homes where many attending the funeral are often forced to park blocks away on the street.
Our $2695 charge for our normal services at graveside is over $1400 less than the charge Chicago Jewish Funerals across the street charges families. Our caskets and also significantly less. As an example, our Dan, aka the Kidron Casket is $1300 versus $2050 across the street. Our Haggai casket at $1600 is over $2700 across the street. Families that want to use the funeral home across the street, or any ohter Chicago Jewish funeral home should consider purchasing the casket from us. We will deliver it free of charge and the funeral home must accept this without any additional fee.
