Central Denver Location
Feldman Mortuary has been in this location since 1939 when 17th Avenue was known as hospital and funeral home row. This historic building was originally built for a silver baron’s private residence. Much of the original charm remains even as the property has transitioned to a bed and breakfast and then to a funeral home. In 1943, Aaron and Dorothy Cohen contracted with Abe Perlmutter to expand the chapel.
In addition to the chapel, our building has gone through a number of renovations over the many years and is about to embark on yet another considerable change. We have listened to our community and have adopted a plan to include a new elevator, larger chapel, audio and visual upgrades in addition to completely being handicap accessible.
There isn’t a day since I started in 1995 that goes by without the thought of relocating our funeral home. In an age of convenience, where a Starbucks and grocery store are on every corner, so too do families wish we were closer to their neighborhood.
We could not be more central for the vast community we serve. Our Jewish community is spread out among Aurora to the East, Westminster/Arvada/Thornton/Broomfield/Boulder to the North, Lakewood and Jefferson County to the West and of course, Highlands Ranch and Douglas County to the South. We are easily accessible via large thoroughfares from our major highways.
To meet the needs of our community in the south, we have added a location near I-25 and Hampden and another facility on the campus of Shalom Park. We currently serve Boulder’s Jewish community with family home visits but are in discussion with local synagogue’s to share office space and are constantly looking for the right property for a permanent location.
Feldman at Jewish Family Service
We have always been deeply connected to Jewish Family Service, working especially closely with the Senior Solutions group; it only makes sense that our first satellite office would be in the Jewish Family Service building. This office is located at 3201 S. Tamarac Street and offers a variety of services from both time of need and plan ahead funeral arrangements to presentations and healing programs.
It is a warm, welcoming office. We have worked hard to make it feel like a home so that people can be as comfortable as possible. Often people are intimidated by making these plans; we hope to lessen some of that discomfort to make it an easy process.
Feldman at Shalom Park
Shalom Park, recently renamed Shalom Cares, has provided a warm, compassionate environment for Denver’s elderly Jewish and non-Jewish population since 1919. We are delighted to add our resources to this esteemed institution in an office located on the campus, in the patio homes at 5150 Shalom Park Circle in Aurora. With its magnificent mountain-view vistas and tranquil setting, Shalom Cares adds a convenient location for us to serve our community in the South Aurora, East Denver, Southeast Metro Denver and Northern Douglas County areas.
Feldman Mortuary’s office at Shalom Cares can be used for all aspects of funeral planning, including pre-planning and service coordination. Although, this office will not be available for on-site funeral services, we are exploring the use of outdoor environments at Shalom Cares for memorial events.
Located in our original City Park location, we provide an elegant, dignified chapel steeped in Jewish tradition. In keeping with our heritage, we feature Tahara and Shomer facilities; both sanctioned by the Rocky Mountain Rabbinical Council and Rocky Mountain Chevra Kaddisha.
Feldman Chapel can accommodate up to 200 people comfortably with ample parking and seating. The family room, located in the rear of the chapel, provides a calm setting for the family before the funeral service and offers privacy. Each family has the option whether to stay in the family room for the service, which could be heard through the speakers and through the decorative ironwork or joining the service in the front rows of the chapel.
