Last Kindness

Every 16 minutes another Jew is cremated.

With workshops, films, free legal burial documentation, access to trained counselors and more, Last Kindness is the only national effort to help every Jew learn about the significance of Jewish burial.  

Last Kindness is founded upon the principles:

  • Jewish burial is the kindness choice to the body, soul & planet
  • Jewish burial is a birthright

EVERY Jew regardless of affiliation, level of observance or any other factor has the right to receive natural, gentle Jewish afterlife care

  • Education empowers choice

Providing access to the meaning and significance of Jewish burial will help more Jews plan for Jewish burial
