Funeral for Joyce Burke, z'l

Mayer & Ethel Lerner Sanctuary

Funeral service for Joyce Burke, z'l, daughter of Hannah Burke (and the late Rolf Burke, z'l), who passed away on Tuesday, May 9.

The funeral service will take place at Ohr Kodesh on Friday, May 12, at 10:00 am followed by burial at Judean Memorial Gardens in Olney, MD.

Please note: Ohr Kodesh volunteers carry out the mitzvah of shmira (guarding), to ensure that Joyce is not left alone until the funeral. This entails sitting in the funeral home (in a separate room), and studying relevant texts, reading Psalms or other appropriate literature. If you can participate in this important task, please sign up at: or email chevra [at] ohrkodesh [dot] org for information.
