The Funeral and Cemetery Handbook
By Rabbi David Weinberger
Rabbi Jacob J. Schacter
A straightforward and practical guide, this handbook provides halachic procedures for funerals, burial, erecting a monument, and selected laws of mourning. Convenient for use by rabbis and laymen, the appropriate services include complete instructions, as well as the service in Hebrew and English. Of particular interest are the moving Hebrew prayers to be said on yarhzeits and other cemetery visits, including special prayers requesting that one be granted children and be able to raise them well, entreaties on behalf of the sick, requests for guidance before the wedding of one’s child, and prayers for a ba’al teshuvah to recite at the grave of a tzaddik.
