Comfort in Times of Sorrow
When a loved one passes away, every member of our congregation is touched by the loss. It’s through traditions and comfort from our community that we gain solace and ease our pain. The Jewish traditions associated with death and mourning not only speak to the preciousness of life, but are intended to help us in a loving way when we are feeling weak, afraid, bereft, and vulnerable. These time-tested observances help to calm us and heal us, enabling us to make the necessary adjustments to separation and loss.
In the Torah, our ancestors asked God to heal them in times of need. At Congregation B’nai Israel, our clergy and staff are here to comfort our synagogue family. We are here to offer prayer, guidance, counseling and support.
Congregation B’nai Israel is able to provide burial plots for our members. We have a dedicated section in The Star of David in North Lauderdale. This location is ideal because in Florida, there are few areas that oer both easy and accessible plots along with an upright monument. Our section provides a water view and a paved walkway.
