The Mission of the Community Hevra Kadisha of Greater Boston

  • To provide information to the Greater Boston Jewish community about one of the most significant and respected mitzvot in our tradition-the ritual ofTahara (ritual washing and preparation of the deceased prior to burial)
  • To train and educate a cadre of caring volunteers (haverim) to perform this mitzvah in a ritually-prescribed manner when called upon to do so. 


The CHK of Greater Boston is a collaboration between Temple Emunah, Hebrew College and numerous synagogues and minyanim. We invite the entire community to learn about the mitzvah of Tahara in an inclusive and supportive setting.


The education and training is guided by Kavod v’Nichum,(www.jewish-funerals.orga national organization whose goal is to educate & train local Hevra Kadisha communities.

Support our sacred work and community education programs by sending a donation  or having your organization become a member.
