Threads of tradition

Threads of Tradition is a group of Jewish women who sew tachrichim – Jewish burial garments – for members of the Beth David community. Tachrichim consist of pants, a long shirt, and a head and face covering, made of pure cotton. Doing this work is our way to provide dignity to the deceased and comfort for those who mourn. It helps us fulfill the mitzvah of chesed shel emet—the greatest kindness, the type that cannot be repaid. Sewing burial garments enables us to provide care for those in our community at this important time in the lifecycle. Taking on this work ourselves instead of delegating it to professionals demonstrates the value of participation by lay members in maintaining Jewish traditions and mitzvot. Sewing skill is appreciated, but not required. Threads of Tradition meets three or four times a year, or as needed to maintain a supply of garments. Website   Email
