Brighton Memorial Chapel is Rochester's premier venue for a traditional Jewish funeral. Visit our customs page dedicated to answering some of these questions.

Many people choose to arrange their own services in advance. This removes the burden and stress from their family members when the time does come. Learn more about our pre-planning options and our Miller Guarantee here.  

If the deceased has not laid out a plan for their burial, the family usually decides what type of service would best celebrate their loved one. A good place to start is our Services page to better understand your options. Or please Contact us and let us guide you through the process.
