Chevra Kadisha Sydney

The Sydney Chevra Kadisha was founded in 1817 to fulfill the sacred obligation of attending, in accordance with Jewish Law, to Jewish Persons who pass away. From the time of passing away the major obligation is to show Kavod (honour) to the Met (deceased person). While staff are employed, the obligations of preparation for burial are attended to, in this “Chesed Shel Emet” (genuine kindness), on an honorary basis by observant men and women of the Sydney community.
