BereavEment

Just as we share in one another's most joyous moments, our congregation is committed to supporting individuals and families in their moments of sorrow and grief.  The community is encouraged to contact the rabbi as soon as a death occurs. The rabbi is available to officiate at funerals in the Washington area, and we will support those sitting shiva with a minyan and service leader.  Our Hesed committee provides a meal and takes care of other needs expressed by the mourners.   A bereavement booklet is also available to assist families in understanding and adapting Jewish traditional ways during the grieving period.
