When there is a death in your family, your community would like to be there for you. Please inform the Rabbi of your loss. The office can help in making funeral arrangements. The entire congregation is then notified of this death as part of an automated call relay system. Bet Torah has burial plots available at King David in Pleasant Valley. Members of our community will assist with shivah arrangements, if needed—Bet Torah has kits, chairs and leaders ready to help. A Shabbat meal will be provided and our minyan can be moved to the shivah house. There is a Bereavement Group that meets to help you through this difficult time of your life. Our active “Helping Hands” Committee will be there for you, ready to anticipate and perform whatever mitzvah will aid you including cooking and bringing meals, and providing transportation, as needed.
