Chevra Kadisha Educational Meeting

Rabbi Nadya Gross will be speaking about “The Journey of the Soul in the Dying Process and Beyond” to an open meeting of Boulder’s Chevra Kadisha, the Sacred Burial Society.  The meeting will be held on Sunday, March 13 from 10:30 am to 12:30 pm at the Clubhouse at 600 Manhattan Dr., Boulder (From Foothills Pkwy, go East on Baseline, first right is Manhattan). Anyone interested in the society and its practices is encouraged to attend.

It is our hope that focusing on this aspect of the process will help us deepen our practice of sitting shmira and performing the ritual of tahara.  This day happens to be same as both the birthday and the yahrzeit of Moses (an auspicious day and month) and it is traditional to make a financial donation to the Chevra Kadisha at this time of year.  Remember that it is also the first day of Daylight Savings Time.

Light lunch will be served at the end of the presentation.  RSVP to eviebc18@gmail.com or call Evie at 303-604-0115 or Kati at 303-494-4578 — requested in order to plan for refreshments.

The Chevra Kadisha is the Sacred Burial Society. We take turns being the companion to the soul during the transition from this life, from death to burial or cremation, which is a very spiritual practice.  Some of us perform the ritual bathing of the deceased. New volunteers are welcome to join. For more information: call Kati at 303-494-478, Evie at 303-604-0115, or Ruth at 303-554-8180.
