During a time of high emotion, need, vulnerability, shock, discombobulation and a sense of being unhinged, the staff at Plaza Jewish Community Chapel is unwavering and rock like in its support, counsel and sensitivity.The client, the bereaved always comes first.This is not a multi-funeral facility; Plaza is "haimish" and takes great care to make sure every aspect of their contact with the community is spot on.From pre-planning to the actual funeral and after, Plaza staff are available.
I've been to Services at Plaza and I wanted to thank them
I have attended several funerals via Plazas Webcasting service and it was wonderful to have this opportunity. Thank you Plaza
Caring, thoughtful, welcoming. My family needed this and it was delivered beyond our expectations. Thank you so much!!!
I was extremely impressed with the courteous, warm, caring and professional experience I recently had with Plaza. They made a very difficult time more bearable. Honoring the dead is a mitzvah which they take very seriously. I highly recommend Plaza.
In a time of loss and sadness we received such thoughtful and caring service .
Plaza is a wonderful community service.
A Sincere Thank you to the entire staff.
My story is a simple one, one probably told by countless others who went to Plaza Jewish Community Chapel. My mother died and they worked with me as we prepared for her burial. They respected her wishes for a traditional funeral and were professional, efficient and kind. I worked with them on a preplan for a relative and I consider them to be my "go to" Chapel for any future bereavements.
As a professional in this field for over 20 years, Plaza is the model for what a funeral chapel should be. Kudos to a job well done, EVERYDAY.
The staff is very knowledgable, attentive and kind. While helping me plan an impending funeral, they were extremely sensitive during this difficult time.
The staff at Plaza Jewish Community Chapel (PJCC) handled all of the arrangements for my mother’s funeral with compassion and dignity, all while respecting Jewish rituals that we wanted included. Since PJCC is non-profit, decisions are always made in the best interest of the client, and are not profit-driven. PJCC’s community outreach, through announcing candle lighting times and seminars dealing with end of life issues is a valued service to the Jewish community.
Plaza Jewish Community Chapel, one of five community owned chapels in the USA, is unbeatable for compassion, commitment to the community, and to making a difficult time as easy as possible.
Services are conducted in a comfortable way, there is never a feeling of "assembly line" here.
The entire staff is professional, knowledgeable, respectful and concerned with the family's well being.
Over the past several years we've been to the funerals of three close friends at Plaza. In every case we were very impressed by the care and professionalism of the Plaza staff. Even more important, the family members told us how much they appreciated the outstanding service offered by Plaza, from the warm and attractive ambience to the completely focused attention they received in supporting them in their loss.
We were confused and needed guidance when we had to plan our parent's funeral. Everyone at Plaza was helpful and sensitive with our family taking care of every detail. Knowing that we were in caring, knowledgable hands took the stress away from an already stressful time.
I am a social worker who has attended Plaza-sponsored seminars on hospice, supporting clients and families through the dying process, and grief. The sessions were thoughtfully organized and the speakers very effective. I am grateful for Plaza and it's work in the community.
I attended a funeral at the Plaza Jewish Community Chapel awhile back. To this day I am still talking about this service because of the way I felt at the time . This was not one of my relatives that passed. This was a friends Mother that passed. It was the way they spoke of her that made me feel as if I had known her all my life. I was so moved by the service and the compassion of those that worked there and how they put my mind at ease during a time when families were in pain, hurting and missing their loved ones. I am not Jewish. But I would feel so secure and comfortable knowing that the Plaza Jewish Community Chapel was in charge of my final time on earth.
Compassion, care and dignity are Plaza's guiding values, no matter who and when the call comes. Plaza understands that our last breath is as important as our first.
Plaza's commitment to sensitively responding to clients needs at the most difficult time far exceeds all expectations As a family member who has been a recipient of their kindness I now strongly recommend them to anyone who asks.
I am a geriatric nurse care manager who had my own experience with Plaza after the death of my mother in law. The support and kindness shown to our family was above and beyond. I've since referred Plaza to numerous clients. Time and time again the sentiment is the same, "caring," "supportive," "amazing," are some of the adjectives my client families use to describe their experiences with Plaza at a difficult time in life. The Directors are always respectful, reliable, understanding and helpful when needed the most. I'd recommend none other for end of life needs.
