Shirat HaNefesh spent a year’s worth of study and discussion on issues of death and dying, over the course of 2017-18.  During that time, we purchased a cemetery section at the Garden of Remembrance, we discussed conversations about end-of-life issues, we explored the customs of shmirah and taharah, and studied Jewish views on organ donation.  We have acquired a collection of shiva minyan booklets thanks to the generosity of Mount Sinai Memorial Parks and Mortuaries.  And we have developed a working guidance document for our members, When Someone Dies.  

When someone dies, please contact Rabbi Gilah Langner (202-364-3006), Hazzan Ramón Tasat, and/or the Chair of our Chesed Committee, Loretta Vitale Saks (301-864-1240) so that we may be able to assist you during this difficult time.

May you be comforted among all the mourners of our people.
