Chesed Shel Emet: The Truest Act of Kindness, Exploring the Meaning of Taharah 
by Rabbi Stuart Kelman  (Author), Dan Fendel (Author), Jessica W. Goldstein (Editor)
 

Taharah practices have deep historical roots. Beginning in Mishnaic times, specific procedures and customs evolved in various locations and through many generations. As a result, numerous traditions exist today. This booklet is one link in the chain of our Jewish tradition. Chesed Shel Emet: The Truest Act of Kindness details the ritual of preparing a body for burial. Our new edition adds a liturgical understanding of the prayers that are said while performing a taharah . This booklet is an essential resource for any existing Chevra Kadishaor for a community interested in forming one.
