Chevra Kadisha

 

The Chevra Kadisha, or holy burial society, prepares deceased members for burial according to the ancient customs of Jewish tradition.  Following the teaching of the Talmud (Tractate Shabbat 127a), the work of the Chevra Kadisha is considered among the greatest acts of kindness, as it is done only out of kavod (respect) for the deceased.  The Chevra Kadisha is ready to respond at a moment’s notice, and will travel to any of the funeral homes in our area.
