Kavod Conversations: Exploring End of Life Topics

TBH sponsors an ongoing conversation on topics related to death and dying, including Jewish rituals and practices, preparing advanced directives and other legal documents, and writing legacy letters. Watch the calendar and newsletters for more information.

A chevra kadisha (sacred burial society) is available to carry out traditional Jewish practices for burial preparation, including ritual washing. The TBH chevra kadisha has created a resource document:

"Blessed Memory: a Jewish Death, Dying and Mourning Guide. " (PDF)


  • First Steps to Take Following Death (checklist for survivors)
  • Explanation of End of Life Jewish Customs & Traditions 
  • Glossary, Basic Liturgy, Poems 
  • An Overview: First Year of Bereavement
  • Local funeral home list, cemetery information, green options & more


If you need personal assistance on End of Life issues or have experienced a death, please contact Rabbi Seth Goldstein.
