Jewish Funeral Services

Traditional Jewish funerals are very simple and usually brief, and will vary depending on the rituals of the different sects: Orthodox, Conservative, and Reformed.

Jewish funeral services are only about twenty minutes in length and contain the following elements:

  • Recitation of Psalms and selected prayers Eyl Malei Rahamim (the traditional memorial prayer), and
  • A eulogy (hesped) honouring the deceased.

Your White Lady or Mareena Purslowe funeral director will work with your Rabbi to help you personalise the funeral service. We can make suggestions as to what you can include so that the service is a true reflection of the loved one and their life’s journey.
