Chevra Kadisha - Traditional Jewish Burial Practices
Should you want to request that traditional burial rituals be followed for your loved one, CBI is fortunate to have a Chevra Kadisha (meaning "holy society") consisting of dedicated member-volunteers trained to perform taharah (ritual purification before burial). Chevra Kadisha members also serve as shomrim (guards) for families in our community who choose to follow this traditional practice.
Furthermore, our rabbis can arrange for shiva minyanim (services in your home following burial) should you choose (even if your loved one is buried out of town). Finally, an additional benefit of membership is that CBI members can purchase burial plots at CBI's Cemeteries at a substantially-reduced rate.
