Hevra Kadisha

Hevra Kadisha is an organization formed by men and women to help the preparation of Jewish funerals and burials according to Jewish rituals. The duty of these men and women is to wait and wash the bodies and prepare them for burial. Hevra Kadisha is considered more sacred than all other mitzvahs since it is a mission carried out with no expectations in return.
