The Jewish Traditions & Practice relating to Death and Mourning
Our tradition encompasses all of life, day and night, light and dark. Even in the most difficult of situations--the imminent and then actual loss of a loved one--our Torah is there to strengthen us, to guide us, and to help us grow and see beyond our loss.
The yahrzeit, or anniversary of a loved one's passing, is a time to remember the person, in the synagogue by reciting the kaddish prayer, through the giving of extra charity and through learning.
The Rabbi and staff are always there especially in times of need. To offer comfort, guidance and bereavement support.
