Chicago Jewish Funerals is an industry leader focused on service. It is the leading independently-owned, full service Jewish funeral home in the Chicagoland area, dedicated to providing personalized and compassionate care for families and loved ones. The entire team is deeply committed and knowledgeable of all facets of funeral services that honor the strong traditions of the Jewish people.


We began as a promise to the Jewish community. You and your family deserve a highly personal funeral service that respects your wishes and the strong traditions of the Jewish people.

Since 1997, Chicago Jewish Funerals has honored this promise. We provide compassionate, concierge-level service with a special sensitivity to Jewish customs and traditions. Day after day, season after season, year after year, people come to us because they know we will be there for them.


One of the important reasons why we can provide such attentive service is that Chicago Jewish Funerals is independently owned. In fact, we are the leading independently-owned, full service Jewish funeral home in the Chicagoland area. We are neither affiliated with, nor a subsidiary of, any national funeral corporation. Our independence allows us to help families arrange a funeral that best meets their needs and responds to specific requests and traditions.


Today, Chicago Jewish Funerals has become a trusted family tradition. We care for the whole family throughout the funeral process and beyond. The lessons we learn from the families we serve inspires so much of what we do – supporting congregations, education programs, even Little League teams – life-affirming community events that instill our lives with hope, connection, and, at times, a little laughter.

We serve the entire Chicagoland area with locations in Buffalo Grove and from our newest chapel in Skokie.

Independent. Jewish Owned. Since 1997.


Our exceptional, attentive staff all live and work in our community and are always here for you. Each person shares an extraordinary dedication to the families we serve. We can help you find a wide variety of support – from healthcare to preneed to funeral services that honor the strong traditions of the Jewish people.


The Chicago Jewish Funerals Buffalo Grove Chapel, located at 195 North Buffalo Grove Road, Buffalo Grove, provides space as well as comfort for any size funeral service. There are two chapels, a larger and a smaller. The large chapel can seat 250 people while the smaller seats 80. Both provide comfortable seats in addition to numerous armchairs and couches. The front of each chapel has soft couches specifically reserved for family members during services. Each chapel has its own private family room attached. This room provides a gathering place for the family before and after the service, and includes seating and a number of beverage choices. Both chapels are equipped with large screens for video presentations or montages, should a family choose this option. The chapels also have a video feed which allows the service to be screened from one chapel to the other as well as to multiple screens in the lobby and family rooms. The lobby is large, with high ceilings and a beautiful skylight. There is a fireplace for warmth in the winter but also adds to the décor in the summer. There is seating in the lobby, with a niche in each corner for guests to sign funeral register books. The parking lot provides ample space for both parked cars and a cemetery procession. An arrangement room with a large, family-style table creates a sense of comfort and connectedness.
