Mitsva (funeral) at Ter Kleef
לנצח, ומחה ה'
The mitsva starts at the “Jadrich” in Amsterdam from where, after a short ceremony, all drive to Beth Haim in Ouderkerk aan de Amstel for the actual kevura (burriel).
Since the war the Jadrich was on the Snoge complex. Some 20 years ago, that was moved to another location, at Ter Kleef. When a mitsva starts from- or enters the Snoge complex, an extra gate must be opened, so Cohanim can enter the courtyard.
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.
All texts, except the Psalms, can be found on cards, as available at Ter Kleef.
