@ my Shul, the members of the Chevra Kadisha do their task gratis; It is a privilege to be involved with such a great Mitzwah, and they wouldn’t wish to detract from the Kovod hoAcharon by being paid in this world.
Kohanim can only have token share in this Mitzwah, by cutting planks of wood for a coffin, before the coffin is brought to the deceased, or by helping with Shiva Minyanim.June 28, 2012 3:04 am at 3:04 am #881254

The Chevra Kadisha guys are usually volunteer, but you could work for a Jewish Chapel. Like most jobs -you need connections, not necessarily experience.June 28, 2012 5:46 am at 5:46 am #881258popa_bar_abbaParticipant
You can. My friends do. It pays well. Speak to the head of a Chevra Kadisha.June 28, 2012 1:01 pm at 1:01 pm #881259takahmamashParticipant
I’m also on a C”K here, and it’s all done gratis. I can’t say I don’t feel anything, not even if I don’t know the person. It’s also sad sometimes to see how little some of the families know about even basic Yiddishkeit.June 28, 2012 1:30 pm at 1:30 pm #881260ChortkovParticipant
It’s a big UNDERTAKING to become a member of the Chevra Kadisha!!!June 28, 2012 4:27 pm at 4:27 pm #8812612scentsParticipant
NY? NY state? NY City?
each Chasidus and community has their own CK.
there are some that are unafilliated such as Chesed shel emes.
