The end of life is treated with sensitivity and care at Oheb Shalom. Rabbi Cooper and Cantor Lippitz visit the ill in their homes or in the hospital, and consider officiating at a funeral, a shiva minyan and an unveiling ceremony to be a priority. Below is our congregation’s guide to Jewish funerals and bereavement.
