Death and funerals have long been taboo subjects. From preparing the deceased for burial to choosing a cemetery, many Jewish end-of-life rituals are unknown until experienced for the first time—and even then remain shrouded in mystery. What is it like to purify a body? How does one comfort the bereaved? Edited by Kavod v’Nichum, the Jewish burial education network, EXPIRED & INSPIRED features personal, inside stories about this most universal of human experiences.
