Chevra Kadisha

As part of the Chochmat HaLev spiritual community, the Chevra Kadisha works with the spiritual leaders to assist our community members in Jewish practices relating to death, burial, and mourning.

The mission of our Chevra Kadisha is to provide support to bereaved community members, including the traditional mitzvot of Taharah (ritual purification and dressing of the deceased) immediately following death, as well as serving as an educational resource for our entire community. We develop ritual, liturgy, and practices that reflect our community’s values of Jewish Renewal, egalitarianism, and mindfulness.
