Metro Detroit’s Jewish funeral homes have agreed that families should follow the directive of Centers for Disease Control and restrict the size of gatherings to no more than 10, for at least the month of March.

For now, in-person funeral attendance will be limited to only immediate family. Otherwise, funerals may be viewed live and recorded on chapel websites.

Together, we thank the community for understanding during this unusual and challenging time.

Dr. David Zeff, a devoted husband to Nathalie, his wife of 63 years, cherished father of Sheri (Philip) Cwagenberg, Shelly (Jordan) Schreier, Karen (Franklin) Rosen, loving grandfather of Jeffrey and Dina, Alayna, Rebecca (Brad) and Haley, Jennie and Seth, great grandfather of Ari.

A graduate of the University of Michigan Dental School, he practiced dentistry for 50 years. He looked forward to his weekly outings with his family, sharing articles from the Wall Street Journal, and taking classes throughout his life, including his attendance at the Temple Israel Saturday morning Torah Study. He will be remembered for his dedication to his family, his warm smile, the twinkle in his eyes, and his caring and compassionate nature.
