ShirAnit: Supporting mourners by preparing the shiva home

ShirAnit supports mourners completely free of cost.

We set up the shiva home by covering mirrors, providing low seats, Kaddish cards, sidurs, books on mourning, among other items.

Our mission is to lighten the load for all Jewish mourners, elevate the souls of the departed by providing opportunities to do mitzvot in their name, and enable friends and families of the mourner to focus on supporting the mourner.

Annual Communal High Holiday Memorial Services (Kever Avot)

Do you have family or friends buried in local cemeteries? How can you meaningfully reflect upon the lives of those who came before? How can the memory of the past give you direction moving forward?

Join us for the Annual Communal High Holiday Memorial Services (Kever Avot) Sunday, September 10, 2023, 10-10:45 a.m., hosted by community rabbis, cantors and chaplains

For many of us, the past few years were marked by loss and death, and some of us grieved in isolation. While the pandemic was hard on all, it was particularly difficult for those who grieved. Join us together as communities as we remember those who are no longer with us and celebrate their lives. Following the short program at the cemeteries listed below, you will be able to visit the graves of families and friends with materials we will provide.


Beth David Memorial Gardens Levitt-Weinstein 3201 N. 72nd Avenue, Hollywood

Lakeside Memorial Park 10301 NW 25th Street, Miami

Mount Nebo Kendall Memorial Gardens 5900 SW 77th Avenue, Miami

Mount Nebo Miami Memorial Gardens 5505 NW 3rd Street, Miami

Walk-ins are welcome. Open to the public. Free of charge. No solicitation of funds. You do not need to have a loved one buried at these cemeteries to participate.


We encourage all to attend, as you can be with others and visit the cemetery.

For those unable to join in person, we can provide a Zoom link before the event. Please register by CLICKING HERE.

When we consider the meaning and purpose of our lives, the High Holiday season is the perfect time to remember those who had a special impact upon us. For this reason, it is a popular custom to visit cemeteries during this time of year. This custom, called Kever Avot (graves of our parents), is an opportunity to remember and celebrate the souls of those who are no longer with us and reflect upon our own mortality and our role in this life. Join us as we come together in memory and prayer and light a yahrtzeit candle for those who brought light into our lives.

Chaplains from the Greater Miami Jewish Federation and L’Chaim Jewish Hospice Program, along with local clergy, will be available to provide resources and support.

This program is supported by Tikvateinu: Together Finding Hope and Healing Following Loss: A Jewish Community Initiative Supported by Mishkan Miami of the Greater Miami Jewish Federation and L’Chaim Jewish Hospice Program.

Everyone will be provided with a brief prayer to use for future visits.

For more information, please contact Rabbi Frederick L. Klein at the Greater Miami Jewish Federation at or 786.866.8486.
