Chevra Kadisha Group Leader Tahara Training
The following video is a training instruction intended for tahara group leaders for both the mens and womens divisions. The class is being given by Rabbi Elchonon Zohn to the Chevra Kadisha of Greater Washington.
It is the policy of the Chevra Kadisha that several of the more experienced members are appointed leaders of the Chevra Kadisha. The group leader or Rosh at every Tahara is responsible to see to it that everything is prepared in advance, and that the Tahara proceed in an orderly fashion. The group leader should assign the various duties to the individual participants, taking into account each persons experience and abilities. In keeping with the dignity of the deceased the assignments made by the group leader, and the instructions which they issues, should not be questioned during the Tahara.
