Often a region has several Chevra Kadisha groups, each primarily serving its own congregational community, each working independently, with little knowledge of what the others are doing. In such a situation, the support and services provided to the region may be enriched by creating a Regional Chevra Kadisha Consortium, with each Chevra Kadisha as a participating member.
Such a Consortium can strengthen the individual groups, through mutual cooperation and understanding, and provide enhanced service to the region through joint community education projects. The Consortium can also create a greater sense of pluralism, tolerance, and mutual respect among the Consortium’s members and their individual communities.
