Ever thought about joining a Chevra Kadisha? Larry Herman, Jennifer Low and Rabbi Schatz share reasons why this important mitzvah could enhance your life, your commitment as a member of the community and your individual connection to the Jewish soul. This is not a session to learn the laws, customs or practices around Tahara or Shmira, rather to hear stories and ask questions about why this mitzvah is being introduced to the Temple Beth Am community and the reasons people should join us!
This class is part of Temple Beth Am's Elul Learning Series 2021: (Re)Building our Home. The series includes classes on Shmita, Chevra Kadisha, Mental and Spiritual Health, Ritual Innovation, Combating Homelessness in our City, Torah learning, 20/30s Relationship Building and more. The series was organized by Beth Am Associate Rabbi Rebecca Schatz and conduced via Zoom on August 15, 2021.
