Many members of the community, both women and men, work as volunteers with the Chevra Kadisha – the “holy community”. We offer:
- Comforting and supporting the dying
- The tahara, washing the dead
- Helping to organise the funeral and the shiva
- Supporting the family of the deceased
We follow all the ritual laws according to Jewish tradition.
The community has a reserved cemetery in the West cemetery in Cologne (Westfriedhof Köln-Bocklemünd). Members of the community can be buried alongside their non-Jewish partners.
In the case of a death, please call us or send us an E-mail.
