The Washer and the Washed: Bound in Sacred Duty

By Lynn Greenhough

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), September 2003

Believing we are with God in life and in death, the author describes her experience as a member of a Chevra Kadisha. She asserts that in facing death we find the spark of holiness that binds us to each other and to God and, in the sharing of that spark, we know that what was shattered can be healed.
