Being a part of the Baltimore/Washington Jewish Community has enabled me to come across the Jewish Funeral Practices Committee of Greater Washington. The committee is made up of experienced individuals, who are actively involved with Jewish congregations, social service agencies, and chevra kadishas, to name a few. This organization spends a tremendous amount of effort to ensure that Jews all over the world have the resources available during a time of need. Their website, www.jewish-funerals.org, acts as a central bereavement database, which can help to educate users on the topics related to death. Aside from the physical needs of the community, the JFPCGW also strives to create financial savings in the Greater Washington Area, by contracting with local providers to establish discounted rates (such as the Fram Monument contract for discounted bronze markers). Whether you are a Baltimore/Washington resident, or not, I recommend keeping that site in your bookmarks. Their work is not easy, and is much appreciated.

Niv was patient and listened to what my family wanted. He had everything produced and installed in the time frame we gave him and the final product was exactly what we wanted and had hoped …

Had a second engraving requirement. Of course, went back to Fram. Extremely helpful in getting right fonts, graphics and size for engraving. Great service, reasonable…
There are many glowing reviews here, so I will just echo them. My experience with Fram was extremely smooth. I handled everything through emails and a few phone calls without ever meeting Niv in person. When we arrived at the cemetery the headstone was exactly as specified. No complaints.
I was completely satisfied with the service provided by Fram Monuments. They were very helpful in all aspects of the process from selecting the stone to helping with the spelling of obscure Yiddish names.
