Indigent Burial Program Supports Acts of Kindness

Federation's Indigent Burial Program partners with local cemeteries, funeral homes and monument makers to provide burial plots and a proper Jewish burial for those unable to afford them. In recent years, the program has been called upon to inter elderly Holocaust survivors, among others lacking adequate funds. Each year, dozens of requests for burials come to Federation from families, cemeteries, funeral homes, police and medical facilities. If you're interested in donating a burial plot or contributing to this mitzvah through the Tzedakah Fund, contact Rabbi Frederick Klein, Federation’s Director of Mishkan Miami: The Jewish Connection for Spiritual Support, at 786-866-8621 or Chaplaincy@gmjf.org.

The Mission of the Greater Miami Jewish Federation is to mobilize human and financial resources to care for those in need, strengthen
Jewish life and advance the unity, values and shared purpose of the Jewish people in Miami, in Israel and around the world.
