Example text

Family members begin the “saying good-bye” process, officially begin their period of mourning, and begin a continuing connection with their deceased loved one during the funeral rites (Bowlby, 1980). Highlighting the need for continuing the bonds with the deceased, many Korean and Chinese American families bring the remains of dead family members from their original overseas burial sites to be reinterred in America. The purpose is to keep the family together and to have the remains available for continued rituals and connection (Fears, 2002).

Shiva prayers focus on the sanctification of God’s name; talking about the deceased is part of Shiva. • It is customary to visit and bring food during this period—check the family’s kosher food observance before bringing or sending food to the house. • Sending flowers is not typically a Jewish custom; sympathy cards and charitable donations are the usual practice.
