Congregation Beth Chaim (329 Village Rd. East, Princeton Junction)
Do you know about Judaism’s best kept secret and kindest mitzvah? Gloria Golbert will talk about the Chevra Kadisha, or “Sacred Society” – the group which lovingly and respectfully washes, dresses, and says prayers for the deceased in preparation for Jewish burial. You will be fascinated by the history and ritual of this important Jewish life cycle event. Gloria Golbert has been a proud Chevra Kadisha member in several communities for over 20 years. She will share her personal experiences and involvement in this act of caring.
A kosher lunch will be served and registration is required by 5/22. RSVP to Beth Englezos at firstname.lastname@example.org or 609-987-8100, ext. 126. The program is open to all and there is a suggested donation of $5.00 per person.
