Chevrah Kadisha: Educating, Organizing and Training

Hosted By: Kavod v'Nichum

Chevrah Kadisha Educating, Organizing and Training will help you learn how to build and strengthen your Chevrah, and how to build support from your community, clergy, and lay leaders. You will learn about:


• Education – acquiring knowledge and teaching techniques to bring information about our Jewish traditions at the end of life to both the Chevrah Kadisha members and to congregational and community audiences

• Organizing – developing leadership skills, building confidence, and inspiring motivation to successfully recruit members and build clergy and community support.

• Training – working with and guiding your Chevrah Kadisha members to understand prayers, build a culture of kavanah, become comfortable with taharah and shmirah as well as other end of life practices, and structure and manage a smoothly functioning organization.
