On behalf of the Jewish Community, the Jewish Funeral Practices Committee of Greater Washington has contracted with Fram Monument Company, Inc., for Fram to supply bronze grave marker plaques at prices generally 30% below those charged by cemeteries.
The prices, for each of four named cemeteries, include granite base, concrete foundation, installation, and all memorial-related cemetery fees. Also, unlimited lines of Hebrew and/or English inscription. There is a fifty year warranty on materials and workmanship.
According to the contract, all Jewish congregations and their members, and family members of their members, are eligible for the benefits of the contract. The contract is effective immediately. They should contact Niv Fishbein at (301) 605-8081 or Steven Venick at 410-486-8666, and ask for the JFPCGW contract.
Companion plaques are 44" by 14" and single plaques are 24" by 14". Prices for installation at each of the four named cemeteries are as follows:
|Judean Memorial Gardens||Olney MD||$2,295||$1,495|

JFPCGW has had contracts with funeral homes in the Washington area since 1976 which provide complete funeral packages, and which have saved the Jewish community over $10 million. This contract with Fram for grave marker plaques is its first for funerary goods, and is a pilot project.
JFPCGW is a member of Kavod v'Nichum, a U.S. and Canada organization of Chevrai Kadisha. They jointly maintain a website at www.jewish-funerals.org which provides every kind of information on Jewish death and bereavement.
