As members of Beth Emet, we are so fortunate to be part of a faith community that is committed to helping each other in times of need. This is especially true when confronted with the death of a loved one.

After a death, when congregants make funeral plans, Beth Emet’s clergy work with the family to plan the shiva period and identify whether Beth Emet shiva minyan leaders are needed. Sometimes families have close friends who perform this important mitzvah, and at other times families are grateful to know that the Beth Emet community is there to help them.

To request a minyan leader, please contact Wendy Yablon or the synagogue at 847-869-4230. If you have experience leading shiva minyans or are interested in being trained to become a minyan leader, please contact Jack Levie or Susan Melczer.
