An organisation that ensures the dignity
of a proper Orthodox burial and the upkeep

of the three Durban cemeteries.

Durban Chevra Kadisha

Founded in 1893, the Chevra Kadisha has devotedly served the Durban community for more than a century, performing Judaism’s important mitzvah of ensuring that every Orthodox Jew receives a dignified burial.
All funerals are conducted under the spiritual leadership of Dr. Rabbi Pinchas Zekry who has served the Durban United Hebrew Congregation since 1984. He is ably assisted by Rabbi Itamar Greenblaum and Reverend Gilad Friedman.
