END OF LIFE The Jewish traditions related to death and mourn- ing are intended to recognize death as a part of life. The traditions of preparing the body,sitting shiva (a seven-day period of mourning immediately after a funeral), saying Kaddish (prayer for the dead) and observing yahrzeit (anniversary of a death) provide a sense of structure at this difficult time of loss.
