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 read ‘Hospital Information‘ for our protocol and guidance document
Similarly, if you experience a death at home please follow steps 3 and 4 on the Hospital Information
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.
