About the Basic Funeral Plan

Anshe Emet’s Funeral Plan is a benefit available to all members and their parents, siblings, spouses, partners and children. The services included in the Basic Plan are at a reduced rate.

The Anshe Emet Plan is available from:

    • The Goldman Funeral Group
    • Chicago Jewish Funerals
    • Shalom Memorial Funeral Home

Be sure to let the funeral director know that you want the Anshe Emet Basic Plan. (Please note: older and/or out-of-state prepaid insurance plans may be transferable to any of our funeral directors.)

The funeral director will meet with the family to finalize arrangements and only a few decisions remain:

    • Text of the published death notice
    • Location of the service (Anshe Emet, funeral home, graveside or elsewhere)
    • Place of burial is determined by site of cemetery plot
