weblink  TAHARAH MANUAL (Guide for Care of the Dead)

"Laying out the dead" is a time-honored process, both ritual and practical, that spans world cultures.  Taharah, the specific Hebrew word for ritual purification, is also used to encompass all of the practices from washing and dressing to laying out the dead.

  • "This evening I participated in my first...tahara and we used your guide.  Our [team leader], who has done it with her own synagogue guide, truly loved using yours, as did our Rabbi for whom it was also her first tahara.  Your holy work is appreciated."
  • "Our [taharah team] felt very comfortable with it.  The directions are very clear and additional readings are very appropriate and beautiful."
