Format: Paperback
I checked this book out from the library to use it as a resource for a religion class. I couldn't stop reading it. Having just lost my grandmother and participated at her funeral sevice, I was very interested in learning about Jewish funeral customs. This book was just the ticket. It is very well written, easy to read (it is broken down into many subsections) and understand (even for the non-Jew), fascinating (if you are not familiar with the Jewish customs), and the section entitled "What is Death?" is extremey profound. I loved his style and his use of words. I plan to purchase it to keep in my library. (It helped me get an A on the report and in the class!)

This is a very detailed guide to the traditional aspects of Jewish observances of Death and Mouring. It is a must for every Jew -- Orthodox, Conservative, Reform, or un-affiliated!

My only suggestion is to my fellow readers -- buy it and read it now! Do not wait until you need it's great advice.

Excellent, comprehensive on the part of subject dealt with. 13 Mar. 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The book is very comprehensive on the specific part of the subject discussed: American, Ashkenazi laws and customs. However, it doesn't deal with the laws and customs elsewhere (e.g., Israel) and ignores Sephardi Jewish customs. Highly recommended if you only want to know about the Ashkenazi Jewish laws and customs in North America.

Indispensable (unfortunately) 16 July 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I turned to this book when my father died. I found it to be a comprehensive and indispensable guide. I still take it with me whenever I visit the cemetary so that I can use its text for graveside prayers.

One-stop reference at an emotional time 2 July 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book provided all the answers I needed.
It was factual, clearly-written, easily-referenced, religiously-balanced, logical and, overall, very useful.
