 Leon R. Komm

Leon R. Komm, Licensed Funeral Director, founded Amherst Memorial Chapel more than 20 years ago. He opened this beautiful facility with the promise to be Western New York’s most trusted choice for Jewish funerals. Building on the foundation of his motto Respect, Reliability & Compassion, he has been assisting families in their time of need. Leon continues on with the day-day operations and works with Mitchell on all services.


We own our facility, which allows us the flexibility to provide the services you want, when you want them. Unlike other funeral providers, we don’t have to ask permission to schedule your services and hope we can do them.

Amherst Memorial Chapel opened in 1995 and was built specifically for the needs of the Jewish Faith. It isn’t just a facility that can accommodate the Jewish faith, but one built specifically for it.

Because of our location we are conveniently located to all Jewish Cemeteries and places of worship. Our one floor facility is completely handicap accessible.
