A Taste of Maavor Yabok:
the Foundational Kabbalistic text on Bikur Holim,
Taharah, and burial rituals, customs and beliefs
Steve Moss will lead this Beit Midrash program on Maavor Yabok, by Rabbi Aaron Berechiah, published in 1626 in Mantua.
It was written in response to the need of the members of the Chevrah Kadisha for a manual that would give them a spiritual grounding in their work.
Steve has been working on a translation of this book since his ordination and will present parts of the book dealing with visiting the sick, vidui and burial.
