Mitsva (funeral) at Ter Kleef

        בילע המוות לנצח, ומחה ה' אלוקים דמעה מעל כל-פנים, ישעיהו כ"ה-ח
        He will swallow up death for ever, 
        and the Lord G'D will wipe away tears off all faces.

The mitsva starts at the “Jadrich”[1] in Amsterdam from where, after a short ceremony, all drive to Beth Haim in Ouderkerk aan de Amstel for the actual kevura (burriel)

The aron (coffin) is covered with a black cloth. Two candles in copper candlesticks are placed on the aron.

Avelim, relatives and friends gather at the “Jadrich”, which is now a days located at Ter Kleef 6 in Amsterdam, about 30 minutes before the mitsva leaves to Beth Haim at Ouderkerk aan de Amstel.

Recordings: LAV, NN, JBS
