09 Oct Why partner with a family owned funeral home?
There are so many reasons to choose a family-owned funeral home. Obviously, as a family run business we are independent and locally owned, plus many of us have been in the funeral industry for decades. After doing this for nearly 140 years (yes, that’s true), we have earned the trust of customers across generations.
Family-owned funeral homes are part of the community in which they serve, they have a personal connection with their neighbors and are usually staffed by a combination of family and members of the community. Here at Goldsteins’ we support many organizations such as synagogues, charities, schools and more. Because we live or work in the community we feel it’s our duty to give back.
Many families, like Goldstein’s pictured here, have been in the funeral service business for over 100 years. Regardless of the type of business, 100 years is a very long time. Philadelphia and its surrounding areas have been our community at Goldstein’s for more than 140 years and we’re honored to maintain the traditions of Judaism while serving the needs of a modern, growing and ever changing Jewish and inter-faith population.
The first call people make when a death occurs in the family is to the funeral home they trust. People will often call the homes that they identify with based on longevity, history of honoring family traditions, and the peace of mind they’ll receive. In the funeral industry, name recognition also means a lot. People often feel more comfortable with names they recognize, have a long-standing history in their community, and are well regarded. At Goldstein’s, we’re honored they call on us.
When it comes to choosing the right funeral home for you, other factors also come into play. We understand this decision is a tough one and often made during your most difficult times. We like to believe that a family-owned and operated funeral home can offer a personal touch that is necessary to make your loss easier to bear. This personal service you receive from us may not be matched at a larger, conglomerate funeral home company where a cookie-cutter approach could be applied.
A family-owned funeral home knows and understands the needs of the people raised in their community. Our commitment to family, tradition, and to personalized service can make us a best-fit option when it comes to choosing a funeral home.
If you’d like to know more about the benefits of choosing a family-owned funeral home or help with making important pre-planning decisions, please don’t hesitate in reaching out to us. Family is what we are founded on and we aim to treat all our clients as we would one of our own.
