A joint project of the FJMC and the Cantors Assembly, this guide was designed to provide volunteers with the needed, halachic, ritual and social skills to lead a Shiva Minyan in a meaningful and comforting manner. Graduates of the course are entitled to receive a certificate of completion from the FJMC & the Cantors Assembly. (See the FJMC website for details.) The guide addresses the different comfort levels of mourners, desired logistics to create the appropriate mood as well as customs that take place at the conclusion of Shiva.
There are discounts, for FJMC Affiliated Men's Clubs and Cantor's Assembly members only when placing bulk orders of ten (10) or more copies.
For those who complete the training, a personalized certificate is created, and shown below. To download a fillable pdf (you can type in the names and date, and then print out the certificates, click here.
