End of Life Resources

Death is one of of life's major rites of passage. The passing of a loved one is shared with family, friends, and the entire community.

For more information about end of life issues, or if someone in your family has recently passed away, please contact Rabbi Elder.

If you know of anyone in our congregation who is in crisis from a death in the family who could benefit from support, such as delivery and/or preparation of meals, please contact our Chesed (Caring) Committee volunteers, Camille DeFrank, Beth McCullough, or Rabbi Elder.
