Do you need to make funeral arrangements?

Your CNS clergy and community are here to comfort you in life’s most difficult moments. From walking with you as your loved one reaches the end of their life by supporting you through a year of mourning, we’re here to help you grieve and move forward. For burial, plot and cemetery information please see the information below.

What to do when a death occurs.

When a death occurs, please call the synagogue office at 503-246-8831 so that we may inform the rabbis and assist you directly. After business hours, on weekends or holidays, contact Michelle Caplan, assistant director, at 971-246-7583.

If you’re requesting tahara for your loved one (respectful preparation for burial according to ancient Jewish tradition) you may request it from either:

  • Holman’s Funeral Home at 503-232-5131;
  • Riverview Funeral Service at 503-246-6488;
  • or the funeral home of your choice.

The funeral home will then notify the chevra kadisha (individuals who help with the burial process).
