If you liked this show, you should follow Bnai Tikvah.
A discussion of the many different aspects of the death and mourning process, including the traditions concerning the taharah, the chevra kaddisha, the burial, the mourning process, and the comforting of mourners, among others. To explain both what the Jewish tradition mandates, and, perhaps more important, the wisdom behind the tradition. We will come to understand why it is not appropriate to be buried in regular clothes, why above-ground burial is forbidden, why we use a simple coffin, and what to say (and not say!) to a mourner.
