Jewish death and mourning rituals can be incredibly comforting, whether you are mourning the loss of someone who is Jewish or if you yourself are Jewish and mourning a loss. In order to answer questions that interfaith couples may have, we sat down with Anita Diamant, who literally wrote the book on this subject.
Diamant’s book, Saying Kaddish: How to Comfort the Dying, Bury the Dead, and Mourn As a Jew, was recently updated “for Jews of all backgrounds and beliefs.” You can learn more about the new version on her website and purchase it here.
The videos below were moderated by 18Doors board member, Mary Fernandez. Rabbi Robyn Frisch, Director of the 18Doors Rukin Rabbinic Fellowship, discusses Jewish mourning with Anita Diamant.
