The Chevra Kadisha of Boca Raton Synagogue is an voluntary organization of men and women who perform this service reverence and dignity, maintaining the highest standards of Jewish customs and laws.
Volunteers are available to guide a family in obtaining the proper funeral, including preventing autopsies, assist families with special needs who are unable to obtain a proper funeral without delay, conduct educational programs about proper Jewish burial, and help prepare the house of mourning by providing meals, special shiva chairs, and a Sefer Torah if needed.
If you are interested in joining the Chevra Kadisha, please contact Yvette Kaweblum at (561) 573-8996.
Are your children away at school? Perhaps they are married and are no longer a part of your daily lives! Then become a part of an awesome group of fun-loving adults who just want to have a great time with friends and at the same time meet new people!
This past year we had a delicious Friday night dinner with a thought provoking speaker, and a fun-filled Purim Seudah with an outstanding DJ and a scrumptious meal. Our upcoming year is going to be the best ever! We are planning to add a trip to the Hard Rock Casino, a theater party, a trip to the Jewish museum in Miami and a brunch!
Most of our events will be taking place from December to April so that we can accommodate all of the Snow Birds who join us in the winter! You will be able to read about all of our upcoming exciting events in the BRS Weekly Activity sheet.
For more information please call: Sylvia Broide (561) 859-6953 or Rita Ruben (561) 372-5706.
The BRS Sisterhood is a social and fundraising arm of our synagogue. Under Co-Presidents Sara Schandelson and Bina Asher, we endeavor to fill our calendar with a variety of programs to meet the needs of our membership.
In past years our fundraising has allowed us to donate to important programs such as Tomchei Shabbos, renovating the playground, new kitchen supplies, and bathroom refurbishment. Sisterhood is currently fundraising for a new kitchen.
Our biggest program of the year revolves around Purim. A generous basket is assembled by Sisterhood for all members as a way of fulfilling the mitzvah of Mishloach Manot. The funds raised from this program helped feed our needy families for Passover. With your enthusiasm, we raised over $25,000 this past year.
