Gutterman’s & Gutterman Warheit Funeral Services
Meeting the Needs of Jewish Families with Compassion, Dignity and Respect
At Gutterman’s & Gutterman Warheit, we have served the Jewish communities in New York and Florida for more than 125 years. We provide funeral, memorial and burial services for individuals and families in all Jewish traditions. For us and for our staff, serving the needs of Jewish families in times of grief and bereavement is a calling. We have been family owned and operated since we opened our firm in 1892. Many of our employees have been with us for decades and some have spent their entire working lives on our team.
We’ll take the time to listen, so that we understand exactly what you want and can honor your wishes. We’ll carefully answer all your questions and work hard to make certain you have the information you need to make the right decision. We are committed to full transparency—we’ll advise you of all potential costs upfront, so there are no surprises.
As a token of our respect and appreciation, we make a donation to the Jewish National Fund, so that a tree can be planted in Israel in the name of your loved one.

Q: How do I start the process?
A: The first thing you should do after the passing of a loved one is call your synagogue and inform your rabbi. Your rabbi should provide guidance with funeral arrangements, but will also work directly with your funeral director. Tell your rabbi that you want to have us handle the details. If you don't have a rabbi, we can help you engage one. Read more
