Chevra Kadisha Notice (Cincinnati, Ohio)


The Poster serves as an announcement of the  Chevra Kadisha (literally Holy Brotherhood, or Fellowship), a term originally applied to a mutual benefit society, later more narrowly to a fellowship organized for the specific purpose of the reverential disposal of the dead in accord with Jewish law and tradition.  Membership in the society is regarded as a particular privilege.  The names, addresses and telephone numbers of the members of the organization are displayed on the poster. From the Bet Tefillah Synagogue, Cincinnati  (aka: Shachne Isaacs Synagogue). c. 1930
