Prayers and Services

In the Jewish religion, there are certain prayers recited to honor the passing of a loved one, celebrate their life, and help with coping during the mourning process.

A minyan, or prayer service, is held for the mourners every day during shiva. Traditional Jews may hold a morning and afternoon/evening service. Mourners are comforted by family and friends who participate in this prayer service. The Kaddish prayer is recited at the conclusion of the service in memory of the deceased.
