Chevra Kadisha

Preparing a fellow Jew for burial is the mission of the Chevra Kadisha. Members of the Chevra Kadisha are selected for their integrity and devotion to Jewish tradition. These men and women are on call 24 hours a day to attend to the various needs of the deceased and surviving family members. Their greatest concern is the dignity of the deceased. 

The Nashville Chevra Kadisha is always here to help you in your time of need. From tahara (washing and dressing) to shemira (staying with the deceased and reciting Psalms), our members take care of everything from the time of death until after the funeral service.
