The “Chevra Kadisha and Jewish Cemetery Conference” started as an annual in-person event in 2003, and centers on Jewish rituals and practices at the end of life. Since 2020, the conference has been online. Topics have included visiting the sick (bikkur cholim), ritual preparation and watching over the dead for burial (taharah and shmirah), funeral, burial, and grief and mourning. Sessions range from text study, interactive workshops, and learning from diverse educators from around the world. 

Stay tuned, more information coming soon!
