About Us


Since 1923 when the Berschler family began in funeral service at 537 Spruce Street and then at 730 Pine Street, the warmth and the feeling of being at a Jewish friend's home have been carried on for four generations. From the early days of Benjamin and Jennie Berschler and his brother Joseph and Sarah Berschler to their children, David and Beatrice, Leonard and Berte and Albert and Joan working from the 4300 N. Broad Street location, the third generation, Howard Shenberg and Wendy Berschler Shenberg, daughter and son-in-law of Albert and Joan Berschler, and now their daughter Kimberly and her husband Scott, the fourth generation now continues this tradition with their parents. Over the years the family acquired the Asher firm at 1927 N. Broad Street as well as the Charles I. Kahn firm at 327 Pine Street. And today, over 90 years later, that same Jewish feeling of warmth comes through at every service conducted by the family from our Philadelphia Area and Southern New Jersey locations.

Having had the opportunity to meet and serve so many Jewish families over the years, we have learned how important it is for each family to preserve their individuality. We offer a large assortment of services from each of our facilities. Families may select funeral services and merchandise for at-need or pre-need services from one source. We also offer assistance with veterans, lodge and social security benefits. We can assist with the purchase or inscription of a monument or marker as well as supply information about the Jewish Unveiling Ceremony and its procedures. If a death takes place out of town or out of the country, we can assist by engaging a local funeral director to handle the transfer and clear all government requirements. We will book the necessary flights for the deceased and the family, if desired.



I know my daughter Susan said thank you for the lovely job you did for Marty.  I want to thank you also for everything.


Thank you for all your help during this very difficult time.


Please accept my deep gratitude for all your assistance and thorough attention to detail with my father's funeral.  Your kindness and care will always be appreciated and remembered.


I wanted to tell you how many wonderful comments we received following my mother's service.  It couldn't have been better and I thank you for making it so.


Thank you for making a difficult time much easier.  Your counsel, attention to every detail, coordination of the service, and sincere caring attitude were a blessing to me and my family.  May you be well and active so that you continue to help grieving families for many years to come.


Thank you so much!


Just a short note to let you know how grateful we are to you, as a family for helping to make the burial of our aunt a little easier, especially regarding her daughter.  ...  Your presence at the gravesite, and how you quietly guided her through the service, was so very helpful, it some how eased our burden.  Thanks again.


I have appreciated your professional demeanor during this difficult time but with your help, my mother's final wishes have been fulfilled.  As an absentee family member, it is especially gratifying to know that, with your help, a proper interment has been accomplished. 


Many heartfelt thanks to you for helping me during this difficult time.  You made my life easier with your professionalism and caring hearts.

Sunday is somewhat of a blur but I guess you see that a lot. I do, however, remember being treated with kindness and respect. 


We wanted to thank you and your company with all of the many details surrounding my mother's death.  We appreciate your attention to detail and kindness.  You made a horrible experience bearable.


Thank you from the bottom of our broken hearts for taking such good care of us during these very trying days.


Thank you so much for all your help with my Mom.  You have been very comforting to me, and I really appreciate your making this difficult time as bearable as posssible.  


Thank you for shepherding us thru such an emotional time and for sending Mom off in such a dignified manner. Your kindness and expertise was invaluable. 

C.K. & A.P.

Thank you for your compassionate attention to my wife's funeral.  We all felt that your personal attention to all the details made us feel better at this trying time.  


My family has been using your funeral home since 1957. I had the opportunity to work with Howard when my mother died. He made sure everything my family wanted for my mother's funeral was done expertly and he made the entire process stress free, considering the circumstances. This way the family could remember my mother for the person she was during her life. 


I first met Howard Shenberg over 5 years ago when he helped my father-in-law plan my mother-in-law's funeral. He was caring and responsive during this time and helped with all the details involved with her funeral. When my father-in-law died, Howard was there again to help us plan that funeral. Howard is helpful, caring and respectful during what is a very sad time.
