Dear Friends and Associates,
The Jewish Funeral Practices Committee of Greater Washington (JFPCGW)
cordially invites you to attend our biennial membership meeting at 10:30 am on
Sunday, June 22, 2003, at Bínai Israel Congregation, 6301 Montrose Road in
The meeting itself will last an hour and fifteen minutes. The agenda will
include: (1) discussion of the incorporation, and changes in the governance, of
JFPCGW; (2) a review of the first year under our new contract with Hines-Rinaldi
and Jefferson Funeral Homes; (3) reports on recent developments in funeral
practices and cemetery options; and (4) a discussion period during which
congregational representatives can raise questions and concerns. We urge you
and other interested members of your committee to participate.
Our meeting is being held immediately prior to, and in conjunction with, the
North American Chevra Kadisha Conference, which begins at 1:00 pm Sunday
afternoon, June 22, at Bínai Israel and continues through Tuesday morning, June
24. The cost of the full conference (including four meals) is $200. However
participants in the JFPCGW membership meeting can attend two of the ten
conference workshops on Sunday afternoon for only $20, and/or the dinner and
evening program for $35. To facilitate participation in the afternoon
workshops, a kosher box lunch will also be available for $15.
Attached * for your information is a full schedule for Sunday, June 22,
including a description of the afternoon workshops. Also attached is a
registration form. Please print and/or photocopy it as necessary, and complete
a separate form for each participant, indicating each of the activities for
which he/she wishes to register. Even participants attending only the JFCGW
membership meeting should submit a registration form. Forms and checks or
credit card information should be sent to Kavod víNichum, 8112 Sea Water Path,
Columbia, MD 21045.
The brochure and registration form for the full Chevra Kadisha conference
