Company Summary

The Jewish Community of Long Island comprises about 1.8 million Jews and their families. When a family member dies, it is up to the remaining members to plan funeral arrangements, including the Shiva, a 7-day mourning period in which the family stays in their home receiving friends and family and often food from the community. We want to take the planning out of the hands of the bereaved, allowing them more time to spend with their family.
