Chessed Shel Emet
The moments of parting from a close person are some of the most significant and difficult momentsin life. The Jewish mourning process concentrates on the memory and honor of the deceased andguides the grieving family members to a healthy and constructive coping with the loss.
The yeshiva, in collaboration with the Hevra Kadisha Tel Aviv-Yafo,operates an escort system designed to support the grieving family and assist them in a variety ofaspects during and after the Shiva.
We offer an instruction booklet that deals with the halakhic and organizational aspects, and weassist in the logistical organization during the “Shiva”: chairs for hosting the comforters, prayerbooks (for those holding prayers in their home), assistance in organizing the prayers, and more.
People can also consider various options for commemorating the deceased: dedicating a day oflearning, saying 'Kaddish', holding an educational activity in his memory and more. The support system is available to anyone who is interested, free of charge.
