At sometime or other,
bereavement comes to all of us. The death of a loved one is a most painful
experience. At the time death occurs we are often at a loss as to where to
turn and what to do.
When a member of a
community dies, it is the community’s responsibility to lovingly assist the
deceased’s family. We at Congregation Beth Emeth want every synagogue
member to know that our congregation is prepared to assist and advise you in
making all necessary arrangements.
When a death occurs,
contact the rabbi or synagogue office first:
more about planning and conducting a Jewish funeral, we have prepared a
guide to Jewish funeral practices, which you can download and print
This guide includes a
planning form to assist you in collecting needed information in advance. You
download the planning form in editable format here.
