Why Come to Us?
Thank you notes we received
We are NOT a funeral home-we are a funeral business! One of our competitors recently opened a funeral home in Skokie estimated to cost up to eight-million dollars to build. With debt service, real estate taxes, utility bills and other expenses we estimate their monthly expenses could be $75,000 or more on this single facility. Families that call this, or other Chicago Jewish funeral homes with chapels, pay for this overhead even if the family doesn't have the service at the funeral home. One of our two offices where we meet our families is directly across the street from this new Skokie funeral home. In comparison with their overhead, we pay $850 a month in rent.
We offer the same services and the same or similar merchandise. In most cases families will save $2000-$4000 thousand of dollars using Mitzvah Memorial Funerals! You can compare our services on our Compare Mitzvah page.
We also believe we save families significantly as we offer a full selection of lower priced caskets. We believe some of our competitors use marketing techniques of offering limited choices of unappealing colors and finishes on lower priced caskets so that families will purchase a more expensive casket. We DON"T do this!
Although savings is important, we realize that service is paramount. With over 175 years of combined experience, our highly, friendly and compassionate staff will serve your family both professionally and tenderly. This level of service as well as our significantly lower prices is why we are chosen by hundreds of area families each year to arrange and coordinate their funerals.
We hope you will turn to us for compassionate care and impeccable service. Our pledge is to honor your loved one and family with dignity, respect and personal attention to every detail.
