The Chevra Kadisha of Cherry Hill, Jewish Burial Society of South Jersey, was established in 1988. Our team of dedicated volunteers is on call to provide tahara to any Jew in the region regardless of affiliation. Devoted to the value of kavod hameis (respect for the deceased) we have expanded as a resource to provide education, support, linkage, and advocacy for any issues related to the care of the deceased.
