Winnipeg's non-profit burial society, serving the Jewish community since 1930.

Chesed Shel Emes is a non-profit organization mandated to prepare members of the Jewish community for burial according to tradition. Each person is treated with the same consideration and respect. No one is refused service due to financial hardship.

Welcome to
Chesed Shel Emes

Our facility on Main Street and Magnus Avenue comprises two adjacent buildings: an historic chapel that was built in 1947; and a new south building where Tahara, ritual preparation of the deceased, takes place.

Our Chapel
The new building features a ramp in front and level entry.

Building on Our Tradition

In May 2021 our Chevra Kadisha began operating from our new south building. Designed specifically for our unique needs, the facility includes our Tahara room, a dedicated Shomer/family space, library and offices.
