When a relative dies abroad, far from the family, whether Israeli or not, the distance itself constitutes a major problem, resulting in paralysis.  In addition, beyond the event of the death, there is a need to organize the funeral and the actions accompanying it. Who will organize it? How should it be dealt with? How do you make sure that it is dealt with in a suitable and reliable manner? How do you make sure that the price is reasonable and not blackmail? That the deceased is treated with due respect, etc.? For this, Menuha La’ad is at your disposal to organize the funeral and arrange the transfer of the deceased from abroad.

As is known, in the State of Israel, National Insurance finances the full cost of burial for every Israeli citizen with rights, and/or every deceased person in Israel regardless of race, gender, or religion.
