Funerals

Congregation Beth Israel offers a climate of dignity, comfort and reflection in times of death. In the case of the death of an immediate family member, please call the synagogue.

The rabbi is available to help you make funeral arrangements and meet your practical, religious, and spiritual needs.

If desired, we will help maintain a minyan in the house of shiva or the synagogue. Mourners can attend our services and recite Kaddish. Annual notices of Yahrzeits are sent to family members in subsequent years.

The synagogue operates two cemeteries:
Kneseth Israel Cemetery
1597 167th and Indianapolis Blvd.
Hammond, IN

Portage Cemetery
2700 Willowdale Road
Portage, IN
