"KAVOD in Hebrew means honor, respect, esteem, strong moral principles, and a source of pride. KAVOD – The Independent Jewish Funeral Chapels, is proud that Torchinsky Hebrew Funeral Home of the Greater Washington D.C. Area has been a part of our Association since its (KAVOD's) inception in 2002. Since then, our organization of Independent Jewish Funeral Homes throughout the United States and Canada has expanded to include the best and elite family owned and operated chapels. We have been recognized as an educator and authority in Jewish funerals by numerous organizations, including the National Funeral Directors Association, Selected Independent Funeral Homes, and the International Order of the Golden Rule. Joyce has gone over and beyond with KAVOD, serving on the Association's Board of Directors, most recently as our President. KAVOD is proud to have such a wonderful Funeral Home a part of our network as we strive to help the families we serve with the best practices and services across the country."
– Jason S. Goldstein, Executive Director, KAVOD - The Independent Jewish Funeral Chapels
Torchinsky Hebrew Funeral Home is the only Independent Jewish Family owned and operated Funeral Home in the Washington Metropolitan Area. Torchinsky Hebrew Funeral Home serves all denominations within the Jewish Community. Funeral services are provided according to Halacha (Jewish Law) as well as secular law. At the last moment, we give the ultimate honor to the deceased according to Jewish Tradition and family preference.
Torchinsky Hebrew Funeral Home offers a full range of reasonably priced funeral services, including cemetery monuments and bronze memorials. Services can be held in our spacious chapel with plenty of free parking, at a synagogue or other location, or graveside. Arrangements can be handled anywhere in the country or world. Prearrangements can be made so your wishes can be kept on file. If you choose to prepay, the entire payment is held in escrow and is 100% safe. There is no obligation to prepay.
We care for each family as if they are our own, and in turn, have earned the trust and respect of families in the D.C., Maryland and Virgina areas for years.
