Rudy Lerner's Experience

Funeral Director/Manager

Chesed v'Emet

Public Company; Myself Only; Individual & Family Services industry

August 2009Present (5 years 2 months)

Chesed v'Emet (which is Hebrew for "kindness and truth" is a full service, low cost funeral service. We provide funeral and cremation services either at the graveside, in a funeral chapel, or a synagogue or church. We primarily serve those of the Jewish faith, but we also serve interfaith families as well as members of all religious faiths. Our costs are much lower than the traditional funeral service provider and our caskets and burial vaults are also less expensive than other providers. In addition, individual and family psychotherapy services are available as Rudy is a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC).
