The Role of the Chevra Kadisha (burial Society)

Throughout Jewish history, being a member of the Chevra Kadisha has been a great honor.  Members of the Burial Society are selected for their character, integrity and personal devotion to Jewish Tradition. 

These men and women are on call 24 hours a day to perform a Tahara, and to ensure that the laws and traditions of Jewish burial are executed properly.  Their greatest concern is for the sensitive care, modesty and dignity of the deceased. 

Men care for men, and women care for women; Jew cares for fellow Jew. 

There is no better way to ensure the dignity of the body than to entrust its preparation to the Chevra Kadisha.
