Beth Sholom is committed to responding quickly and compassionately, and to offering guidance in accordance with Jewish tradition in the event of a death. Our rabbi and executive director provide necessary information and guidance needed to support mourners in making funeral arrangements, setting up and conducting shiva minyanim, and providing light refreshments following the funeral. We maintain contracts with area funeral homes to make it easy for our members to plan a traditional funeral at a reasonable cost.
When a death occurs during working hours, please call Marcia Newfeld in the Beth Sholom office, 301-663-3437. When a death occurs outside of working hours or on Shabbat or holidays, please call Marcia’s cell phone, 301-471-0040. Leave a message and Marcia will return your call.
The Chesed Committee assists families by providing light refreshments following the funeral and burial. The Religious Affairs Committee will help set up and lead shiva minyanim.
Please accept our condolences on your loss. May God comfort you among the other mourners of Zion.
