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 next two episodes of “Conversations,” the talk show series on Jewish Sacred Aging Television.
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.
In this episode, Zinner discusses the work of Kavod v’Nichum. In the second part of this series, which will be broadcast beginning August 1, he describes the educational seminars and conferences held by the group’s training affiliate, the Gamliel Institute.
