Misaskim
Understanding tragedy with compassion, Coordinating crisis with expertise

No one is ever prepared to cope with a tragedy. When people are thrown into that dark abyss of crisis or loss, the pain and the grief is accompanied by a crushing feeling of isolation and bewilderment by the many unknowns of this new uncharted territory. And so, they call out to Misaskim

Misaskim’s mission is to provide support and assistance to individuals experiencing crisis or tragedy by providing vital community services, which include safeguarding the dignity of the deceased, assisting the bereaved and supporting individuals during these times.

Misaskim’s wide array of services include moral support and assistance with the many challenges during crisis or loss. Throughout life’s darkest moments, Misaskim is a source of light and warmth, encouragement and direction

Please note that over the Sabbath and Festivals, access to Misaskim services will be restricted – During this time please leave a message on the answerphone to enable us to contact you as soon as possible once permitted

If you are looking to make contact from a care facility (eg hospital or care home) and require support following a death, please click on the link on the right titled ‘Hospital Information’ to read our protocol and guidance document
