Desert Foothills Jewish Community Association
DFCA Pastoral Committee
DFJCA has organized a Pastoral Committee to help its members in their time of need when there is a death in the family. We understand that this is a time when support, comfort and guidance is needed, and DFJCA is prepared to help in the following ways:
1. We will inform our members via E-mail that a death has taken
place and we will provide information about the funeral and
2. We will be available to support the mourners by guiding
and helping them with decisions that need to be made.
We have available a list of Rabbis, mortuaries, cemeteries
and food caterers.
3. We have members who, upon request, will attend and conduct
(if available) Minyan Service in the Shiva House. Prayer books
for the service are available on request.
4. We will provide, as available, assistance with any other needs
on a case-by-case basis.
