The Chesed Shel Emes was established in 1930 as a non-profit organization with a mandate to prepare members of the Jewish community for burial according to the Shulchan Aruch (Jewish Code of Law) as practiced by Orthodox Judaism. Each person is treated with the same consideration and respect. Accordingly, no one is refused service due to financial hardship.
The Chesed Shel Emes is a not-for-profit, independent, community-based organization. Our board of directors is comprised of representatives from each of Winnipeg’s synagogues and cemeteries and interested members of the community at large. Volunteers are welcome.
