K’Vod Hamet: A Guide for the Bereaved
By Rabbi Stuart Kelman

Two guiding principles inform all Jewish rituals related to death and mourning, namely k’vod hamet (respect for the dead) and nichum avelim (consoling the mourners). Using these two principles as reference points, this booklet explains Jewish customs regarding burial and funeral preparations, grieving, and comforting a mourner.
