Kavod v'Nichum and Gamliel Institute provide resources, education, and training along the Jewish end-of-life continuum: from visiting the sick and pre-planning, to care for the body after death, to providing comfort to the mourners.

The Conference Venue Moves Yearly

Since its inception in 2003, the annual North American Chevrah Kadisha and Jewish Cemetery Conference has been held in a different city each year. We try to move the conference venue all over the US and Canada, as we engage communities from diverse geographical cultures and backgrounds.

As you can see from the list of previous conferences locations below, the conference venues have been all over the map.

If you have a suggestion as to where you would like to see a conference held, and in particular, if you are passionate and want to be the local contact for a conference, please let us know! We would love to work with you to bring the conference to your community.
