It's one of a kind Jewish operated funeral home in NY. Here is a loving, respectful ambience and highly professional approach. The staff and shomrim are wonderful. The building is spotless, with nice modern decorations, I would recommend for everyone, 5 star's place.

I would absolutely recommend Plaza Jewish Community, where we held the services for my father. Everyone there was courteous and helpful and extremely kind, and they answered all of our questions patiently and thoroughly. The Rabbi was terrific; he clearly had the gift of oratory and used it well during the service. There was no upselling and no nonsense. I highly recommend Plaza Jewish Community...Josh

Keith Friedman was fantastically helpful. I was stuck at home because of snow and ice post-storm, and could not make it to the funeral of a dear teacher and colleague. My technology wasn't working to see it online and Keith worked it all out for me. Five stars!

Plaza Jewish went above and beyond to retrieve the video content from my dad's funeral way, long after it had expired on the site. They were nice, professional, and responsive.

Testimonials

As a Geriatric Nurse and care manager, I pride myself in doing the very best for my clients and their families. There is no funeral home I could recommend more than Plaza- the professionalism, kindness, and compassion of the staff is unparalleled.

Hildy Sheinbaum , Geriatric Nurse Care Manager

Some years ago, I was interviewed by the New York Times for an article they were doing on Plaza. I spoke about the wonderful support and services provided by Plaza in connection with my father’s funeral. I feel the same now, even stronger.

Howard F. Sharfstein *

When my husband passed away, Plaza was there for me and my family, gently walking me through the very painful process of saying good-bye. Their professionalism and kindness will never be forgotten.

Cantor Rebecca Garfein * , Congregation Rodeph Sholom, NYC

We were pleased to use Plaza for the funeral of my father-in-law, Robert Tishman. We still remember the warmth, thoughtful and genuinely caring service that was provided and have been delighted to recommend Plaza by reason of this personal experience.

Harold Handler *

Fortunately, my family has turned to Plaza several times for advice, and help funeral arrangements and the process of obtaining multiple copies of death certificates and other legal requirements. But more importantly the sensitive and kind manner of the staff have been calming when we feel overwhelmed and stunned by the loss of a loved one. It is always an agonizing time but Plaza makes it possible to get through the first few days of grief and mourning

Lynn Kroll *

My observant family was already burdened by traveling to Florida to care for my beloved mother during her long and painful illness. They were then faced with the impending challenge that it seemed likely that her death would take place on Shabbat.

We will always be grateful to Plaza, who handled all of the arrangements needed to ensure compliance with the Halachic rules governing Shabbat; transporting her body; arranging for the Chevrah Kadisha and Shmirah; and scheduling a funeral service and burial in New York quickly, efficiently and sensitively and in accordance with our beliefs and traditions.

Bob Wolf *

We couldn’t have been more pleased or grateful for everything Plaza did for us at such a difficult (and vulnerable) time in our lives. You made it easy and comforting for us, when it could have been anything but. Everyone was gracious and accessible, for which we are appreciative
