What To Do When a Loved One Passes

If a loved one has passed, you may be feeling a whole range of emotions and uncertainty.

Cleveland Akron Jewish Funerals is here to help. We will find you a funeral home with the services that interest you. You will be introduced to a funeral director who will guide you through immediate next steps, including what to do if your loved one passes away at home. An arrangement meeting will be scheduled to discuss funeral services and burial options.


The Arrangement Meeting

An arrangement meeting is necessary to review funeral service and burial options, as well as statistical information, which will be used to complete a certified copy of the death certificate. Please note that the arrangement meeting may take place virtually or
in-person at the funeral home.


Funeral Service Options

During the arrangement meeting, a funeral director will explain the funeral and service options available, which may include services at the funeral home, graveside services, and memorial services.
