David Zinner, executive director of Kavod v’Nichum, a Maryland-based organization training Jewish communities and organizations in traditional Jewish funeral practices, is the guest on the March 17 Jewish Sacred Aging Podcast.
Zinner describes the educational seminars and conferences held by the group’s training affiliate, the Gamliel Institute.
Kavod v’Nichum (Honor and Comfort) encourages and assists the organization of bereavement committees and Chevra Kadisha groups in synagogues and communities so that they can perform Jewish funeral, burial, and mourning mitzvot; protect and shield bereaved families from exploitation; and provide information, education and technical assistance.
More information on the Gamliel Institute is in Rabbi Address’ March 9 blog post on this topic.
