NASCK, the National Association of Chevra Kadisha, advances chesed shel emes* throughout the world, every day.

The organization’s wide-ranging programs include training and support for chevros kadisha (Jewish burial societies), the Shabbos Vayechi and Last Kindness outreach projects, a 24-hour hotline, the SFJC cemetery, and more.

*Literally translated as “true kindness,” chesed shel emes refers to caring for the deceased, who can neither care for themselves nor reciprocate kindness done to them. Judaism values it as the highest, purest form of kindness.
