Jewish Funeral Services

Funeral Customs

Focus of a Jewish funeral. The focus of a Jewish funeral service is respect, honor, and endearment of the deceased. Comfort and consolation of the mourners come later, after the burial. Until then the honor of the deceased remains the primary concern of the Jewish funeral service, Boulevard Funeral Home and Cremation Service will attend to the family’s needs. During the funeral service the casket should remain closed and the body completely covered.

The Jewish funeral services

Usually a Jewish funeral starts with a eulogy, delivered by the rabbis, community leaders, relatives and/or friends of the deceased. After that the mourners rend their garments, if they had not already done so earlier. The torn garment represents a broken heart. The memorial service, that starts after the rending of the garments, consists of recitations from the Book of Psalms and the Book of Proverbs and is followed by memorial prayers. Afterwards everyone joins the funeral procession escorting the deceased to the grave for burial.

This is, however, only a general outline of the Jewish funeral service. A prayer, psalm or verse might be added, and the sequence of the funeral service may vary according to customs of different communities. It is common, for example, to start with rending and then proceed to the memorial service and eulogy. One should follow the local custom or ask a competent rabbi for guidance.Please visit https://www.boulevardfuneralhome.com/jewish-funeral-packages

Etiquette at a Jewish funeral.

Those who attend a funeral should dress conservatively, although, most people do not follow the custom of wearing black as a sign of mourning. The mourners should select the clothes that they are prepared to rend and wear throughout the mourning period, then discard after as is customary in many places.

Those who attend the funeral should not engage in idle talk thus showing disrespect to the deceased. If it is necessary to say something, one should whisper. It is best to reserve socializing for after the funeral. Mourners should keep in mind that while we may be glad to see a friend or have good news to share, the mourners are brokenhearted and the deceased, whose soul is present, can no longer do the things we are doing now. Therefore, people should not exchange greetings for the whole duration of the funeral; it is forbidden once the funeral procession enters the cemetery.

Funeral Time and Place

The time interval between death and the funeral should be as short as possible. The Torah forbids leaving a corpse unburied overnight. Burying without delay is an important aspect to show respect for the dignity of the dead. One must strike a balance, however, between respect accorded by prompt burial and the respect accorded by a proper, well-attended funeral. Consequently, a valid reason for delay might be the need to wait for the delivery of shrouds or a proper casket, or to wait for the arrival of the eulogizing rabbi or the arrival of close relatives, who cannot arrive in time for a same day funeral. Funerals do not take place on the Sabbath, or a major Jewish Holiday and are postponed until the next day. Funerals are sometimes delayed because of government regulations requiring a postmortem examination, or completion of documentation, etc. Any other type of delay is usually considered humiliation of the dead and is not allowed.

NEW YORK — Showtime and Sacha Baron Cohen are pushing back against allegations the comedian duped guests on his new show by posing as a disabled veteran. The network says in a statement Monday that Baron Cohen "did not present himself as a disabled veteran" or wear any military apparel when he met with Sen.

CNN's Cooper calls Trump's summit performance 'disgraceful'

Jul 17, 2018

NEW YORK — Seconds after President Donald Trump's news conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin ended Monday, CNN anchor Anderson Cooper called the American leader's performance "disgraceful." It was the most startling of several strong media reactions to the session, televised live by the largest American broadcasters and cable news networks, primarily because of Cooper's role. He was the news anchor directing CNN's coverage, as opposed to a pundit paid to be opinionated. "You have been watching perhaps one of the most disgraceful performances by an American president at a summit in front of a Russian leader, certainly that I've...

Statelessness a hurdle for some boys rescued from Thai cave

Jul 17, 2018

MAE SAI, Thailand — The 12 boys and coach of the Wild Boars soccer team who were rescued from a cave in Thailand last week share a characteristic with many of the professional European clubs its youthful members idolize: They are a multiethnic, cross-border crew. But while the stars of the major European leagues, no matter what their origins, can stake a claim to fame and fortune, some of the Wild Boars cannot even count on a permanent home. Three of the players — Mongkol "Mark" Boonpium, 13, Adul Samon, 14, and Pornchai "Tee" Khamluang, 16 — and 25-year-old assistant...
