Independent Jewish Synagogue in Asheville, NC

Chevra Kadisha

Taking care of those in our community who have passed is, arguably, the greatest mitzvah that one can perform. For it can never be repaid. At CBI, we provide the  vast majority of effort on behalf of the entire Asheville Jewish community; a responsibility we gladly bear. Whether it’s the mitzvah of shmira (guarding the body after death) or tahara (ritually preparing the body for body) volunteering for chevra kadisha is both life-affirming and powerful.
