Guide to Jewish Funeral Practices

Guiding Principles

 

Jewish belief, rituals and traditions that surround death and burial are governed by the core belief in the sanctity of the body. The respect that the deceased individual deserved in life is carried forward in the traditional Jewish funeral, with its rituals of washing, dressing, caring and guardianship. These rituals, and the funeral itself, are sacred rites invested with dignity and simplicity and with the greatest consideration and respect for the deed.

 

The preparation and burial of the body are highly valued mitzvoth, ritual commandments. They are considered to be acts of kindness performed without expectation of reward. The Sinai Temple Chevra Kadisha is a volunteer group of dedicated congregants and clergy. With the support of our clergy and in cooperation with Mount Sinai or the mortuary of your choice, the Chevra prepares the deceased for burial.

 

For rabbinic assistance, more information or to notify the Sinai Temple Chevra Kadisha, please contact the temple at (310) 474-1518.

Sinai Temple is a partnership between its clergy, staff, lay leaders and devoted members who are committed to supporting the tradition and vision of Sinai Temple. Your gift to Sinai Temple will enable us to continue these holy tasks for years to come. Thank you for helping us to bring our history, our beliefs and our promise to a new generation.
We are a member of the Federation of Jewish Men's Clubs. We aim to provide a framework within which men can broaden their knowledge and understanding of the history and values of our people and in which they can make tangible contributions of their talents and treasure in an environment of good fellowship.
Our goal at Sinai Temple is to create a Bar/Bat Mitzvah program that is a spiritual and religious experience counseling child and family to God, the Jewish people and to each other.
The Sinai Temple Israel Center is the first synagogue center that provides programmatic resources and avenues for Los Angeles Jewry to establish cultural, professional, spiritual, and economic ties to the land of Israel.
