When death occurs, both the family of the deceased and the soul of the deceased are faced with a difficult journey. According to the Talmud and the Kabbalah, the soul does not completely leave this world until after burial. For families and friends there are three key principles that must be remembered when death occurs. They are respect for the dignity and holiness of the body, the expeditious return of the body to the Earth from which it formed, and finally the fortifying the soul in its continuing journey. Some ritual practices that bereaved families can engage in are “The True Judge” blessing, those present at the time of death recite the blessing: Baruch Dayan Ha’emet- “Blessed be the true judge. After death, the eyes and mouth of the deceased should be closed, and a sheet drawn over the person’s face. The body of deceased should then be placed on the floor and candles should be lit near the deceased’s head. These rituals together with the ones listed here: https://www.levandoskifuneralhome.com/jewish-funerals/jewish-traditions provide comfort and guidance for the soul of the deceased.

Jewish law is clear that the body in its entirety must be returned to the Earth, for the natural process of decay to occur. Levandoski-Grillo Funeral Home & Cremation Service provides simple Orthodox pine caskets that will help the body decay. After the body is purified, it is dressed in white clothing, signifying purity, and holiness. The basic components of an Orthodox funeral service are Keriah, the rending of the garments. Usually done at the beginning of the service, the relatives of the deceased are required to express their sorrow by tearing their clothes over their hearts. The Hesped, or Eulogy. This is done either by the officiating rabbi or someone who knew the deceased. Good deeds of the deceased are spoken. Mourners accompany the deceased to their final resting place and the body is returned to the Earth. Ideally, the grave should be filled in, by hand, by fellow Jews. Additionally, Jews should strive to be buried in a Jewish cemetery with other Jews.

Based on centuries of Jewish tradition, the Jewish funeral service has long adhered to a strong set of beliefs in agreement with the teachings of the Torah. While Orthodox and Conservative Jews still rely heavily on these customs, some Reformed Jews have modified the traditional funeral customs.
