We’ve updated our CBE Funeral Policy

While we all understand that death is a natural part of the life cycle, we of course recognize that it can be a stressful time for the family. When facing the death of a loved one, there are many tough decisions that must be made and families are often in need of comfort, support and guidance. AT CBE, our clergy and congregation are here to assist and support during these difficult times.

What’s new?

As always, a member of the Beth Emeth clergy team (or their community substitute if necessary) will be available to officiate at a local funeral of Beth Emeth members.  We are happy to announce that CBE clergy will now also officiate for the local funeral of those related to our members as a parent or child.

What’s the same?

As it’s always been, there will be no cost for the clergy's services and use of the sanctuary.  The standard rental fee will be assessed if a meal of condolence is held at Beth Emeth.

There are times when our clergy may be asked to officiate at the funeral of non-members, outside of Beth Emeth. In these cases, the following fees continue to apply:

$450 honorarium to the rabbi or cantor

$800 fee to Beth Emeth
