Temple Memorial Chapel was created to provide affordable, fully customizable burial and cremation services for New Jersey's Jewish communities. Because Temple understands that each family's needs are different, we work closely with each family to provide dignified personal services.
If you would like to hold a service in our chapel in Jersey City prior to burial or cremation, we would be happy to accommodate you. Our chapel seats up to 75 people, and has ample parking and modern facilities. Alternatively, Temple is happy to arrange services at alternate sites, such as at your local synagogue, a cemetery chapel, or another funeral home.
Our team can make arrangements at our facility in Jersey City or at a location of your choosing. Most elements of the arrangement process can even be handled over the phone. Whether you are Orthodox, Conservative, Reform, or non-affiliated, we will be able to accommodate any religious or personal requests you may have.
