Wellwood, NY

Dear Friends and Members,

As the Chai Center grows in members and friends, so do the activities and programs which accommodate the growing needs of our community.

A recent addition to the Chai Center was the acquisition of the “Chai Gardens”, a section in the New Montefiore Cemetery in Wellwood, for the benefit of the Jewish residents of Dix Hills, Melville and vicinity. This cemetery is to be used for all Jews of our community, the affiliated and non-affiliated alike.

We have purchased 50 graves located at New Montefiore Cemetery  in Wellwood. We are taught that pre purchasing a grave is a talisman for long life. The Chai Center will be selling these graves on a first come first served basis.

The fee structure is as follows: $4000 per grave. This purchase may be paid out over 12 months with a 25% deposit down.

Should you have any further questions, please don’t hesitate to call the office at 631 351 8672 or Kevin Gray at Star of David Chapels at 631 454 9600.
With blessings for a long and happy life filled with nachas, joy, prosperity and meaning.

Rabbi Yakov Saacks 

For your convenience, we have put together a booklet, which includes a summary of the Jewish customs and traditions regarding the end of life, as well as the Chai Gardens policies and procedures, which were adopted by the board of The Chai Center. Please review the booklet carefully. (Download from the links below)
