A Look at Jewish Funeral Customs
If you are unfamiliar with Jewish funeral customs and plan to attend the funeral services for a Jewish friend, then you may have some questions about what to expect. This video examines the typical customs that are part of a Jewish funeral.
During many Jewish funeral services, men are expected to cover their heads. There are generally not open caskets or flowers, and guests do not interact with the immediate family until after the service. At the cemetery, all attendees may be asked to place dirt over the casket.
