If your family is interested in planning a traditional Jewish funeral, our staff can assist you with the planning process. A Jewish funeral typically follows traditions that have been practiced for thousands of years.
Jewish funeral services are typically held in one of three places: the synagogue, a funeral home or the graveside. Typically, these services are quite brief and include a eulogy, reciting psalms, and a traditional closing prayer. The service closes by the casket being carried to the hearse and a processional to the cemetery.
Once at the cemetery a graveside service is held that is also quite brief. Once all of the guests have arrived, the service continues. The graveside service includes reciting more prayers prior to the lowering of the casket. The closing prayer is then recited for a second time.
The mourners then recite the Kaddish for the first time in their bereavement. This is followed by guests and mourners take turns placing dirt into the grave. Once the service has concluded, guests form two parallel lines facing each other. As the mourners pass between the lines, guests recite a traditional blessing.
