Rabbi Tom, Thank you for leading my mother's memorial service at Zion Garden this past week. I felt the service was a real celebration of Mom's life and your guidance was very key in making it come together in this way. With loving memories.
Rabbi Tom, Just a note of profound thanks for conducting our mother's graveside service last weekend. Our family could not have been better served, and a number had substantive conversations you brought out with your (I believe somewhat unique) open - friendly demeanor and style. Your genuine interest in people is apparent.

Funerals & Memorial Services
Jewish law and custom create time for grief and provide a methodology for grieving. The Jewish approach to bereavement is based on respect for the powerful emotions of loss. Mourners are given a structure to encourage feeling their loss, and thus heal. At MCJC, we work closely with individuals and families who have experienced the loss of a loved one. MCJC members Herb and Eileen Franks founded the McHenry County Jewish Cemetery in 2009 through the Franks Family Foundation. The MCJC cemetery is located on a serene setting on a hilltop at the Oakland Cemetery in Woodstock, IL, a mature cemetery that dates back to 1859.Please contact Rabbi Tom about having a meaningful, and personalized Funeral or Memorial Service for your loved one, at: firstname.lastname@example.org or at 815-455-1810.
