Bereavement & Funerals

If there is a death in the family, please contact the Temple Office at (301-942-2000) or immediately. We will assist you in the many questions you may have.

The URJ website has an extensive section on practices around death and mourning.

Temple Emanuel also has a Guide to Bereavement which is available in the Temple office to answer many questions.

The Temple can help organize a meal of comfort and evening minyans through its lay leadership and bereavement committees.


The Temple office also will send reminders about upcoming Yarzeit dates to remember your loved ones at Shabbat services.
