Planning For A Jewish Burial

You probably have spoken with your family and/or your attorney about Advanced Directives that express your desires for medical care and financial concerns if you are unable to make decisions for yourself. You likely have a will with directives for how personal matters should be handled after you pass away. Planning for your burial is part of your advanced care planning and is as important as your Do-Not-Resuscitate status and the location of the safe-deposit key.

WHY PLAN FOR BURIAL IN ADVANCE?

  •  You will spare your loved ones the burden of making decisions for you in a time of intense emotional stress.
  • You will be able to relieve your survivors of the financial and emotional burden of arranging for burial when you have passed away.
  • If you choose to be buried at Beit Olamim, you announce that you are part of Jewish community today and want to be part of its future in the most permanent way you can.
  • By preplanning the purchase of plots, you are securing the lowest cost possible.

HOW CAN YOU PLAN?

  • Talk with your Rabbi if you are affiliated with a synagogue, or
  • Contact the Jewish Burial Association of Madison (JBAM).
