Respectful treatment of the recently deceased and a prompt burial is one of the greatest mitzvot of the Jewish faith. This is the only truly selfless act; a mitzvah you can do for another with no expectation of it being returned.
Costs of proper Jewish burials have continued to rise. On occasion, a member of our community will pass with no means or family to assist in covering these costs. The Windsor Jewish Federation & Community Centre, Chabad of Windsor, Congregation Beth El, Congregation Shaar Hashomayim and Jewish National Fund of Windsor are partnering to launch a Windsor Indigent Jewish Burial Fund to ensure that every member of our community has access to a dignified Jewish burial.
To contribute to this special appeal, please make your donation out to the Windsor Jewish Community Centre and designate your donation to “Windsor Jewish Burial Fund Appeal”. You can make your donation online by clicking on the button below, or by contacting Michelle Turnbull at email@example.com to drop a cheque off at the WJCC.
We thank you for helping us with this special mitzvah.
