the embalming process. Embalming is a chemical
treatment with preservatives of human remains
in order to retard decomposition or decay.

require embalming. Embalming may be necessary,

such as: a funeral with viewing, or if the
deceased is to be sent across state boundaries

If you do not want the embalming service,
you usually have the right to choose an arrangement
that does not require you to pay for it, such
as: direct cremation or direct burial. Embalming

Many families wish us to provide the Rabbi/Cantor/Minister/Priest
with the honorarium for the services they
perform. This make one less detail for the
family to have to concern themselves with
at this difficult time. The California Board
of Rabbi's has suggested a set fee for their
services. We include this fee on our contract
and present the officiant with a check at
the time of service. Of course, the family
may deal directly with the Rabbi/Cantor/Officiant/Priest
if they prefer.
A two-line obituary notice will be placed
in the Los Angeles Times or the Daily News
upon request and at the family's expense.

otherwise not requested. Of course the family
may write their own obituary for El Orador,
The Los Angeles Times or another Spanish Journal.
