A Jewish burial society in Australia is believed to be the first in the world to offer live web streaming of funerals over the Internet.

The Melbourne Chevra Kadisha has installed a camera at the prayer houses of the two main cemeteries in Melbourne, according to a report in the Australian Jewish News.

The web streaming, which is in its trial phase, costs about $250, according to Chevra Kadisha director Fred Grossman. DVD copies of the funeral service also are available.

Grossman said the service was proving popular, largely because so many Jewish families are dispersed across the Diaspora.
