About Funerals at Beth Or
“May God comfort you among the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem.”
When death is imminent, families and friends need comfort, support, care, and guidance, which our Temple community can provide. The time of bereavement is difficult. Personal rabbinic guidance and written materials are available to help families organize their plans and prepare.
At the time of death please notify our rabbi immediately at 215-646-5806. If you are calling after hours, the clergy cell phone numbers are on their office voice mail. Funeral services, minyans, and unveilings are scheduled directly with the rabbi.
