Care, Compassion & Community: An Introduction to the Chevra Kadisha

Taught by: Rabbi Jonathan Bernhard and Sarit Wishnevski

Dates & Time: 
Wednesdays, July 10th, 17th, and 24th
7:00-8:30 p.m. Eastern / 4:00-5:30 p.m. Pacific

Location: Zoom 

Cost: $72* (sliding scale pricing information below)

Join us for “Care, Compassion & Community: an Introduction to the Chevra Kadisha,” a three-part class that will explore the answers to the questions: Why does the Chevra Kadisha exist? Where does it come from? Who can participate? What are the rituals? 

We will learn together to form an understanding of what deep care looks like at the end of life when offered from a place of compassion, love, and Jewish values. Topics include the purpose and role of the Chevra Kadisha (historically and in modern society) and the rituals of Tahara and Shmirah through interactive discussions, personal reflections, and insights into the spiritual and physical care provided by the Chevra Kadisha.

No prior knowledge is necessary, and any Hebrew words or texts will be offered in transliteration and translation. 

*Kavod v’Nichum strives to make our opportunities financially accessible and we utilize a sliding scale model based on need.
