THE IMPORTANCE OF A FUNERAL
INFORMATION FOR MOURNERS
HOW TO CONSOLE

The funeral brings together a community of mourners who, by supporting each other, can help themselves through a difficult period.

To resolve their grief, mourners need to accept the reality of death not only on an intellectual level, but on an emotional level as well. It is for this reason that the traditional funeral is important.

A funeral confirms the reality of death and serves as a focus for expressing feelings of loss.

"Gathering together for the service we offer support and share sorrow. Grief shared is grief diminished."

-Rabbi Earl Grollman
