Moritz Mayer’s Memory Endures
The late Moritz Mayer served as a member of the Agudas Achim and Tifereth Israel burial societies. A Chevra Kadisha is a volunteer Jewish burial society that takes responsibility for the ritual cleansing and subsequent dressing of a body for burial. Burial Society members selflessly step up and offer their support during this incredibly difficult time. Moritz Mayer left the bulk of his estate to the Foundation. The Foundation honors Mayer’s memory with annual gifts to each synagogue.
