Over the centuries, a beautiful and powerful ritual called Taharah - washing, purifying and dressing the deceased for burial has arisen by which we sanctify the transition from life to death. Taharah is the work of the Chevra Kadisha. Oak Park Temple and Temple Har Zion have joined to form the WSCK. The first of its kind in the western suburbs, to make Taharah possible for our community.

When requested by a family member, a team of our volunteers will come to the funeral home to wash, purify and dress the deceased for burial.
