  • I want to commend Beth Israel and, especially Ed Rusnak for not only your professionalism - but also for all the help you gave me and my family when my father - in- law, H.F., passed away. Beth Israel is certainly a credit to your profession. Ed Rusnak was truely wonderful as he made himself available to us all night, all day and really helped us with the funeral arrangements. Ed and your entire staff deserve kudos for thier professionalism and humanity at such a sensitive time. They were there for us both professionally and ... personally. Ed and your staff are certainly the reason you have earned such a stellar rating from the Jewish community. Thank you again for making a difficult time easier.

  • Our friends, the N.'s, stopped at your facility and told you our plight. My husband, G.F., mother passed away on Sat., 3/1. Due to some family strife, the funeral was scheduled for the very next day, Sun., 3/2. We called every airline & couldn't get a flight because of the impeding storms, airline schedules & last minute notice. You were kind enough to give us the materials, enabling us to hold Shiva in our home in Delray Beach. We cannot thank you enough for coming to our aid in our time of need. Although we were not able to get home to P., you helped to lessen our burden and make a very sad situation somewhat tolerable. Thank you for strengthening our belief that the Jewish community in Delray Beach is very strong and takes care of its own. You truly have saved the day. Thank you again.

  • Subject: Extraordinary Service Message: Dear Mr. Shapiro and Mr. Mandell: I wanted to contact you to let you know about the extraordinary service and treatment from Mr. Ed Rusnak. I have never met such a compassionate and empathic person in my life and to do so at the time of mother's death, was almost like I was meeting Clarence in the movie, It's a Wonderful Life". I'm so grateful for his service and style and wanted to reach out and let you know.

  • Beth Israel Memorial Chapel - It was a pleasure dealing with Mr. Edward Rusnak in setting of a preneed Funeral Arrangement. He explained each step in great detail in a professional and compassionate manner. After dealing with Ed I knew that I would not use any other Funeral Director for my Preneed argreement. Ed is a credit to the profession and a true gentleman. Beth Israel is fortunate to have hm as an employee.
