Sunday: Deeper Meanings of Tahara and Shmira

Congregation Nevei Kodesh and the Maimonides Wellness Center invite you to join us and Reb Zalman on Sunday, April 4th for an informative and inspirational meeting of the Boulder Chevra Kadisha.   The Chevra Kadisha is a group of volunteers serving the Jewish community by preparing the dead for burial. The members take turns sitting shmira, a continuous vigil that takes place from death until the funeral. Some members also choose to perform the ritual tahara, the washing and dressing of the body.

The meeting will take place from 10 am – noon at Nevei Kodesh, 3269 28th St Boulder (upstairs, above Dairy Queen).  This event is free of charge and is open to the community.  RSVP’s are appreciated: Ruth Seagull rrseagull@gmail.com, or 303-554-8180.

About Staff

They call me "NewsHound IV," because I'm a clever Finnegan, sniffing out stories all over the Boulder area. I love Jewish holidays because the food is GREAT, especially the brisket. Well all the food. I was a rescue pup and glad to be on the scent!
