The Chevra Kadisha of Kehilla wants to honor the Tree of Life Chevra Kadisha for their spiritual strength and dedication. As one of our Chevra Kadisha member said “I had been thinking about the work of the Chevra Kadisha in Pittsburgh these last few days overwhelmed by the magnitude of the task. … I find it difficult to imagine working on victims of targeted anti-Semitism who died from gun violence.”
In love and appreciation of the Tree of Life Chevra Kadisha, the members of Kehilla’s Chevra Kadisha personally donated $976.00 to HIAS. We choose HIAS because it addresses so many aspects of this tragic event and is reflective of Kehilla as an activist congregation. Some of us also wrote personal letters to the Chevra Kadisha offering our love and support.
