Funerals & Unveilings
I am always available for funeral, memorial, and unveiling services. Don’t hesitate to contact me if I can be of any assistance to you for any of these ceremonies. I am comfortable with both traditional and humanist ceremonies. Funerals are expensive enough. My fee is reasonable, even nominal if personal finance is an issue. Everyone deserves the dignity of a meaningful funeral service; one that is personalized and pays tribute to a life well-lived.
I can travel throughout the Tri-State area if the situation arises. I will make the time to speak with you and listen to you and the family of the deceased about the deceased. Through this process I will be able to provide the type of service you desire.
“Rabbi, I’d like to thank you again for giving my mother such a beautiful funeral. You conduct yourself with a very gentle and sincere countenance. We visited my brother Isaac afterwards, and I know your service as well as her children reunited would have pleased my mother greatly.”
– Jacob Bondell
“Please accept this donation to your discretionary fund in memory of our mother and grandmother. We all thank you for the lovely service which you conducted and for the eulogy which celebrated her life. To all in attendance it sounded as if you knew her very well.”
– The family of Bertha Steinberg
“Dear Ron, I wanted to thank you for the wonderful service you conducted on Sunday for mom and dad. I heard so many nice comments from my family and friends, and I know mom and dad would tell you the same if they could! If I’m in need of a Rabbi in the future, you will be the man I call. I’m so happy to live in the age of the internet or we never would have found you. Again, thank you so much.”

“Dear Rabbi Broden, I just want to thank you for doing such a wonderful job at my mother, Joy Raden’s, funeral today. Your remarks not only captured the essence of my mother as a person but were also delivered in a comforting and healing manner. I left the ceremony feeling calm and peaceful. You did a mitzvah by helping me through my grieving process. I spoke to the others in attendance, and everybody else felt exactly the same way”
– Matthew Raden
“Ron: I wanted to let you know how much I appreciated your handling of my mother’s funeral and unveiling this past weekend. If I hadn’t known better, I would have sworn you had known her all your life! You were able to pick out the salient points in the stories we all threw at you just moments before you had to speak, and you helped us through a most difficult time with grace and dignity – and a sense of humor my parents would have appreciated.”
