2nd North American Chevra Kadisha Conference

Jewish Communal Obligations in Dying and Death

Las Vegas, Nevada June 6th - 8th, 2004

Kavod víNichum, Temple Beth Sholom and Midbar Kodesh Temple of Las Vegas, are pleased to present the second annual North American Chevra Kadisha Conference in Las Vegas, Nevada from June 6-8, 2004.  The conference will explore the obligations of the community, the synagogue and the Chevra Kadisha in facilitating Jewish funeral, burial, and mourning practices. Through teaching, discussion, training, networking and exploration of available resources, we will further refine the role of the Chevra Kadisha in the 21st century.  Go to Conference Program.

The conference is geared to Chevra Kadisha committee members, lay leaders and professionals including synagogue administrators, rabbis, cantors, chaplains, students, funeral coordinators and directors, cemetery administrators, counselors, educators, medical professionals and other interested parties.  Whether you are new, or experienced, observant or just interested, the Chevra Kadisha conference will provide you with a first class experience, including top speakers, thought -provoking workshops and opportunities to network and find answers to all your questions.

Price should not be a deterrent to attending this conference. Early registration is only $250 (including all meals) and rooms are available for $77 per night (double occupancy including tax). Just add in air fare and youíre ready for three days of Chevra Kadisha immersion. Go to Conference Logistics.

You may want to spend additional time before or after the conference enjoying the wildlife of Las Vegas (either on the strip or hiking in Red Rock Canyon.) 

Conference Registration is open. We're looking forward to seeing you in June,
