Hevra Kaddisha

Sarah Woelz
Rabbis' Assistant

B’nai Torah is proud of its dedicated group of Hevra Kaddisha volunteers. Caring for the dead is considered one of the greatest mitzvot in Judaism, since it involves caring for those who cannot return the favor. Members of the Hevra will come to the funeral home to prepare the deceased for burial, washing the body, dressing it in simple shrouds, and offering prayers for the deceased. 
Typically, men will prepare men who have passed away, and women will prepare women.
