Excellent resource on the Jewish way of death, dying and mourning, as well as information specific to the Washington DC metro area including local funeral homes and monument providers. Please visit www.jewish-funerals.org for more information.
The Bereavement Committee supports our clergy and professional staff in assisting members who have suffered a loss. We participate in the Jewish Funeral Practices Committee of Greater Washington, which provides additional resources online at www.jewish-funerals.org.
We reach out to families from within our congregation who have experienced a loss. Our goal is to create the experience of community, strengthening the relationships that bind us together. We are always looking for new volunteers – training provided – to visit shiva homes and deliver a meal on our behalf.
