In an effort to provide New York Jews with access to more affordable traditional Jewish funerals, the Union of Orthodox Jewish Congregations of America (OU) has signed an agreement with Parkside Memorial Chapels to provide a package deal that could save its members up to $1,000 on the cost of a funeral. The agreement comes 18 months after state and city officials warned of rising Jewish funeral costs in the city because of a monopoly on Jewish funeral homes they charged was being pursued by a Houston-based international funeral services conglomerate.
