Service Offerings and Protocol

We are a full service provider of Jewish funerals. Our services include all of the necessary arrangements for preparation and observance of Jewish funeral traditions. Over the years we have directed all kinds of traditional and non-traditional funerals. Our family of funeral counselors will be happy to discuss all of the options with you.

People choose many different ways to commemorate the life of a loved one:

  • Traditional chapel & memorial services in our conveniently located funeral home
  • Chapel service in another locale, such as a synagogue or other place of worship
  • Alternative options, including cremation
  • Coordination with out-of-state or international cemeteries including Israel
  • Graveside service at the cemetery location

Our Funeral Services

Our licensed funeral directors walk you through every step of the process so that you can select the ideal commemoration of your family member or friend. We handle all of the details, including respectful care for your loved one prior to the service, a religious or non-religious officiator for the service and arranging with the cemetery.

Memorial Services

Memorial services are held to remember a loved one who has chosen an alternative burial, such as cremation. Many of the aspects of the service are similar to a traditional funeral. Memorial services can be held in our chapel or another location where families are encouraged to provide photographic displays and share memories. Our experienced funeral directors can provide you with a religious or non-religious officiator for your service, as well as handle all of the details associated with a memorial.

Out of State

In today’s society, more and more people are moving to other states or have vacation homes, but wishing to be brought back here to the Washington area for burial because this is where they grew up, where their family lives or is buried and where they own a plot in a cemetery. Whatever the reasons are, Torchinsky Hebrew Funeral Home has established relationships with funeral homes all across the country to make this simple and stress-free for your family.

Conversely, if you wish to have your funeral here in this area and the cemetery is located in another state or internationally (such as Israel) we can accommodate your wishes as well.
