Alan C. Farkas Chevra Kadisha

After a Jew dies, a burial society, known in Aramaic as the Chevra Kadisha (literally, "holy society") prepares the body for interment. This process, called tahara (purification), involves the ritual cleaning of the corpse, by men for males and by women for females.

Jewish tradition regards it as exceptionally meritorious to join a Chevra Kadisha, because so many people are
reluctant to do so. Although, few Jews outside of the
Orthodox community, are even aware of Chevra Kadisha
societies. They exist in virtually every Jewish community.
