In Judaism there are many way to mourn the loss of a loved one.  A Jewish funeral is an opportunity to honor our loved one with words and deeds.  Our words describe the character and greatness of the one we have lost and we use our strength to shovel the dirt on the grave.  This act is a hessed shel emet – a true loving kindness.  We can never be thanked for this last act of kindness.   

After the funeral it is customary to sit shiva in one’s home or the home of the deceased.  Here at WJC we are committed to helping you arrange a minyan (prayer service) so that you can say the kaddish (the jewish mourner’s prayer) Our daily minyan also provides an opportunity to say kaddish for the first week, month or year.
