Serving the greater Los Angeles Jewish Community

Chesed Shel Emet
The Ultimate Kindness

Performing the mitzvot of guarding and

preparing the deceased for burial.


Working in conjunction with rabbis, funeral homes, and Jewish institutions in our community, The Valley Chevra Kadisha (VCK) is a “holy society” of volunteers dedicated to the communal responsibility of burial with the utmost honor and loving kindness, maintaining the highest standards of Jewish tradition.

The VCK is available to schools, congregations, and other community groups to provide information and educational programs about practices related to the mitzvah of burying the dead and caring for the deceased.

Details of chevra kadisha services are kept in strictest confidence

to respect the privacy of families.
