ID : 81396   
« back to classes page
Jewish traditions regarding death and dying, the funeral, the treatment of the body, burial, mourning, and annual remembrances are very different from Christian practices. This talk illuminates the differences and similarities of these funeral traditions - highly beneficial for interfaith families. Scenes from two comedic films from Mexico, My Mexican Shivah and Nora's Will, as well as American movies, This Is Where I Leave You, Two Weeks, and The Cemetery Club illustrate Jewish funeral, burial and mourning traditions.
