Dear Berkowitz-Kumin-Bookatz Memorial Chapel,
I would like to share a suggestion for improving your service to the Jewish Community. I am sure you are familiar with the Jewish laws pertaining to a Kohen’s coming in contact with or being in the same room as a corpse. Currently, a Kohen who attends services at your chapel and wants to properly observe the laws of ritual purity does not have any suitable facility for sitting and shelter from the elements. I recently found out about a chapel in Harrisburg, PA called Kesher Israel Congregation which does offer those accommodations to Kohanim. Surely if Harrisburg, PA can accommodate Kohanim in a respectful manner, then all the more so a larger, growing city like Cleveland.
By providing appropriate facilities for a Kohen you will be serving mourners at many funerals and perhaps educating many who may be a Kohen and aren’t familiar with the laws of ritual purity. I would appreciate your consideration of this matter.
