A Holy Duty
If there is one topic most people are afraid to confront, it is that of death. Many of us, if not most, spend our lives avoiding talking about death. Certainly, not many of us willingly welcome death into our lives.
A look into the lives of the "Chevra Kadisha", or "Sacred Society"; a group of Jewish volunteers that spend years of their life preparing, sanctifying, and burying Jewish bodies.
