Caskets

Choosing a casket is a very emotional and personal decision. You are, in essence, forced to decide upon the last item you will ever be purchasing for your loved one. Additionally, everyone’s set of circumstances is different. And of course, cost is always a consideration.

We at Star of David recognize the difficulty in making this decision and want to provide information to assist you in making the best decision, especially in light of your particular set of circumstances. Please contact us at any time with any questions you may have.

 
The list below includes photos and prices of the caskets we most frequently provide. Each of these caskets conforms to Halachic (Jewish) law in that they are manufactured completely free of metal. They are constructed from wood and held together with wooden dowels and glue. The prices will vary based upon how exotic the species of wood from which the casket is made, the workmanship and detail, and the type of finish. Obviously, the more it costs to produce, the more it will cost to buy.

Please keep in mind that no casket chosen will delay the inevitability of your loved one returning to the earth. In fact, this is the Jewish way that nothing should delay this. A casket should be chosen based upon your budget and what you deem an appropriate choice.

The Abraham Casket

Price: $900

This, in no way, should discourage you from choosing it.
