Chevra Kadisha Society
Our Rabbi, Richard Plavin, established the "Chevrah Kadisha" over fifteen years ago to insure that members of our congregation are appropriately prepared for interment, following our traditions and rituals. A separate group for both men and women has been established. There is ongoing training of the rituals and tasks involved, and our committee constantly encourages new volunteers. Universally, our members find their involvement with the committee in performing these difficult but necessary final tasks to be emotionally and spiritually gratifying, in that we can provide one last bit of assistance to our departed friends and neighbors.
