End of Life

Your CNS clergy and community are here to comfort you in life’s most difficult moment.

From walking with you as your loved one reaches the end of their life through supporting

you through a year of mourning, we offer a variety of ways for you to grieve and move

forward with us. For burial, plot and cemetery information please see  Cemeteries page.


When a death occurs call the synagogue office 503.246.8831 so that we may inform the rabbis and be of assistance. After business hours, on weekends or holidays, contact Fred Rothstein at 503.475.2934. If you wish Tahara for your loved one (respectful preparation for burial according to ancient Jewish tradition) you may request it from Holman’s Funeral Home, 503. 232.5131; Riverview Funeral Service 503.246.6488; or the funeral home of your choice. The funeral home will then notify the Chevra.
