New burial advisory service set for launch

The ITIM religious services advisory organization is set to launch a pilot program next week to provide people who have suffered a bereavement with free advice and assistance for everything related to burial and mourning procedures.

The organization says that there are numerous issues to be arranged and decided for a funeral which few people are aware of, and that such matters need to be taken care of when people are already distressed from the loss of a loved one.

The purpose of ITIM’s burial service therefore is to help people deal with logistical concerns, to advise them on rights,burial costs, and any other relevant details, and to provide information about Jewish customs and laws surrounding burial and mourning if requested.
