Chesed Shel Emes Funeral Home
Kabbala teaches us, that the elaborate caskets mostly in use today, and the materials they are made of, cause the deceased discomfort and pain.
At Chesed Shel Emes we provide caskets custom built, by scholars fully versed in its Halachic and Kabalistic requirements. The caskets are made of simple Pine wood with special specifications in keeping to those guidelines.
Earth from the Mt. of Olives in Jerusalem, is imported from Israel, and included in the casket, to give the deceased the added merit of the Holy Land.
Of equal importance are the burial shrouds, the materiel they are made of, as well as the dressing of the body which requires special Kabbalistic knowledge.
