We all know the hectic difficulties of preparing for a wedding. For months, the family plans each detail. However for the difficult time that is mourning, there is no time for preparation. 

When a family member is taken from this world, the shock and sorrow surrounding the family is immeasurable. However the reality is that between tears they must prepare for the burial of the deceased, and prepare the home for shiva. 

ZAKA Knows Grief

ZAKA regularly deals with routine and emergency situations, and closely accompanies grieving families. They understand and are familiar with the pain and sorrow of the loss of a loved one.  Now, the heroes at ZAKA have a new mission: To care for the living that are left behind. 

The Chesed Car

ZAKA hopes to provide a new and incredible service: a 'chesed car' for aveilim. The ZAKA Chesed Car would provide full equipment for the days of shiva. Once the help center receives a referral, a vehicle would be filled with all items required for the deceased's home in order to ease the grieving family as much as possible.

In order to continue this work, ZAKA must immediately purchase a new vehicle that can accommodate all the items that the mourners and family members need, including  new equipment including chairs for the mourners, benches for mourners, Torah scrolls, water tanks and dozens more.The supplies will even include a Sefer Torah contributed to by the gedolim themselves.   

Those who open their heart to give will be a true partner in 'chesed shel emes'. Thank you.
