Jewish Funeral Customs

A Jewish funeral service differs from other funerals you may have attended in some key ways:

-During the funeral and services, men may be asked to wear a skull cap (yarmulke).

-There will be no open casket, as per Jewish custom.

-Flowers should not be brought or sent to a Jewish funeral. It is customary to make a donation in the name of the deceased to a worthy charity or cause, which the family may designate.
