was created to assist chevros kadisha in defining, establishing, and achieving the highest degree of kavod hameis (respect for the deceased), as defined by Jewish law.
NASCK’s mission has since expanded to include the creation and advancement of programs promoting traditional Jewish end-of-life values across the US and Canada. This includes educating the unaffiliated about the importance of kevurah k’halachah (Burying the dead according to Jewish law) and combating the painfully high rate of cremation, currently at 40% and rising, among Jews.
