Ex-manager hurt by Chevra Kadisha shun

FORMER Chevra Kadisha general manager Linda Schulman has expressed her hurt and disappointment that she has not been called upon in her voluntary capacity to perform the important mitzvot for the deceased.

She said: “I have been a volunteer and worker for the organisation for more than 30 years and I only resigned my paid position and not as a volunteer.”

She added that she has had no contact from the executive since she resigned and even her daughter, Jodie, another volunteer, has not been called upon.

She told the Jewish Telegraph that she has received an email from the Chief Coroner of West Yorkshire, Kevin McLoughlin, praising the work she has done for the organisation.

The Jewish Telegraph was told by Menachem Gilbert, joint Chevra Kadisha chairman that we would be given a statement about Mrs Schulman’s situation. But nothing has been received as we went to press.
