We are here to support you in your time of need, with guidance and counseling before and after a death in your family. After a loved one dies, please call the Temple before making any arrangements so our clergy can assure their availability to be with you in your time of need. Our clergy can then meet with you and your family to help you choose the best way to honor your loved one, can connect you with a Jewish funeral home, and can officiate at your loved one’s funeral, burial and shiva services. Your Temple family and our Chesed Committee are here for you.
Grief & Mourning (Chesed, Shiva)
Our Chesed Committee actively cares for those grieving by providing a meal, and reaching out during this time of need.
When it’s time to mark the death of a loved one, traditionally a year later an unveiling service takes placed. Loved ones gather and remember the one loss by revealing the new headstone and placing a stone. Our Clergy are available to support you during these services. We also have materials available for you should you want to lead the service with your loved ones yourself.
