Historical Snapshot  

The Belkoff Goldstein Funeral Chapel was founded in 1977 by the late Howard B. Belkoff, an individual known for his active involvement in the community. Then named Belkoff’s Jewish Memorial Chapel, the center opened its doors in the heart of Lakewood, NJ and has proudly remained in the same location throughout all its years of service. The chapel is the only Jewish funeral home in Ocean County that is still independently owned and operated. This despite conglomerates purchasing many local funeral homes; keeping the names intact but changing the personnel and then significantly raising the prices of services. In a commitment to client-centered care, our funeral home has kept the cost of its services at a reasonable low.
