The Association of Chevros Kadisha was created to educate, unite, and support Jewish Burial Societies, in the New York Metropolitan area and nationally, dedicated to traditional burial practices. It acts as an umbrella organization to assist member groups in defining, establishing, and achieving their goals. It also serves the Jewish community-at-large by providing information and education on issues pertaining to end-of-life and Kovod Hameis (respect for the dead).
