Shmira Information and Sign-up

Our tradition provides that someone who has passed from this world to the next is "guarded" until he or she is buried. Though "guarded" is the literal translation of the Hebrew word from which "shmira" comes, it is more like we are providing companionship during this journey. During this time, it is traditional to read Psalms, but any other reading from our texts or literature that fits the seriousness of the occasion is appropriate. Please signup for one-hour shifts - as many times as possible! This is among the greatest service we can provide one another. (Also please note that there will be a break tomorrow night in shmira between 8-11pm to allow for the tahara (ritual cleansing) to take place.). Click for more information about Shmira.

Shmira will be at:

Prout Funeral Home
370 Bloomfield Ave  Verona, NJ 07044
