Jewish Mourning Rituals: Caring for the Body

In Judaism, traditions around death have two purposes – to comfort the living, and to show respect for the dead. Understanding some of the more nuanced Jewish traditions and rituals for caring for a body before the funeral may help provide some support in a grieving process.

This project was made possible with generous support from The Koret Foundation, as part of its Initiative on Jewish Peoplehood.
