Throughout the ages, Jewish communities have established societies to care for the deceased from the time of
death until interment.
Jewish Sacred Society is an organization of men
and women who perform this service with dignity and maintain the
highest standards of Jewish customs. Our members participate
voluntarily in this “Chesed Shel Emes” (genuine kindness).
Functions of this volunteer organization include:
a Tahara (ritual washing and dressing) to any Jew who complies with a
halachically correct funeral.
● Provide a Sefer Torah with a portable Aron
for the house of mourning.
● Furnish special Shiva chairs for the
mourners to sit on.
● Available 24 hours a day to guide a family
in obtaining the proper funeral, including preventing autopsies.
● Assist families with special needs who are
unable to obtain a proper funeral without delay.
For urgent problems or questions, please call (773) 743-0074 and leave a message with our 24-hour answering service.
