Brighton Memorial Chapel, Inc. is conveniently located 1.5 miles from the Jewish Home of Rochester, and just moments from I-390, and 590. Our location puts us minutes from most temples, hospitals, cemeteries and the airport. With our location on Winton Road South, the building could not be more convenient to the Jewish communities of Brighton, Pittsford, Henrietta and other eastern suburbs. These towns make up roughly 72% of the Jewish population in Rochester, based on the most recent census sponsored by the Jewish Federation of Greater Rochester.
Brighton Memorial Chapel is able to offer the Jewish community of Rochester a state of the art funeral home. The funeral home was designed as a “step free” environment. There are no steps from the moment you leave your car. At the entrances are two Porte-co-cheres (covered drive through) for drop off & pick up convenience; with glass roofs for natural illumination. Twenty-four hour all weather emergency phones on the outside entrances of the building put you in contact with a funeral director in the off hours when the funeral home is closed. Brighton Memorial Chapel also provides plenty of safe, well lit, off street parking with room for 180 automobiles.
The showcase of the funeral home is our chapel, which offers seating for 150 with an additional five handicap spaces for wheel chairs.

The lobby is a cozy entrance with seating warmed by a brick fireplace. The reception area is located at the main entrance for immediate assistance to all visitors.
Prior to paying your condolences to the family, a station greets you, where a register book, donation envelopes, yarmulke’s (skull caps) and even pictures can be displayed.
There are three rooms available, for either family gatherings prior to the start of a service, or for families that wish to receive or sit Shiva in our building. Each room has areas focused on personalizing your plans; equipped with a register & memory book station, sound system, and magnetic picture boards.
Our state of the art camera system also allows us to display services on one of our 52" televisions in one of our viewing rooms in the event of an overflow crowd.
The elegant chapel will comfortably seat 150 people, with an additional five handicap spaces for wheel chairs. We have the flexibility to accommodate the largest or smallest of funeral gatherings. The high ceilings enhance the state of the art sound system. There are hardwired and wireless microphones for the family and clergy's convenience. The chapel also includes a full loop for the hearing impaired. Our camera system allows us to video tape a funeral service. As an added feature to the camera system, we are capable of displaying a service on a TV in one of our additional rooms in the event of an overflow crowd. For a more intimate service, smaller rooms are available.
Arrangement / Conference Area
Our spacious conference rooms will help make you feel at ease while planning funeral arrangements. Designed to feel like a dinning room in a private residence, families feel more comfortable than making arrangements at a desk in an office setting.
The funeral home is also able to provide a Kohain (Jewish High Priest) room, with a separate roof line for mourners to participate, with our state of the art audio and video system.
For more traditional families that choose a Taharah (Ritual Washing), there is a large Taharah room for the Chevra Kadisha to perform their services. Although most families will never see this room, we are committed to making it a sacred area for your loved one.
The Miller family opened this beautiful new facility in January 2000. Brighton Memorial Chapel is proud to share space with Miller Funeral Homes, Inc. By sharing space, there is no high overhead, which allows us to pass the savings onto the families we serve. It should be noted that there is nothing “non-kosher” about Brighton Memorial Chapel. There is very little overlap between the two funeral homes, and no objectionable religious symbols or references. We pride ourselves on the functionality and appearance of our facilities. Our equipment and premises are all kept within the highest of professional standards while offering a clean, comfortable atmosphere.
