For Chevra Kadisha Members

The purpose of these videos is to provide instruction and guidance when dealing with complicated tahara situations. Their content is not meant to supersede any minhagim or successful practices that are already in place. Since every situation is different, the senior metaher should decide whether or not to remove a device, keeping in mind that any action taken should be done with the utmost sensitivity to ensure kavod hameis.
