ASD is proud to sponsor Funeral Pro Chat, an exciting and informative Podcast series for funeral directors. Now available on iTunes, the series features directors and experts discussing the latest funeral trends, news and customs. This month, we are proud to feature Bruce Jacobs of Hellman Memorial Chapels and Riverside Memorial Chapels in NY. In this podcast interview, Bruce is interviewed by Nancy Burban and ASD Public Relations Specialist, Jessica Fowler, about jewish burial customs and how they have evolved.
Listen now to hear Bruce explain the origin of many Jewish funeral traditions, how jewish burial rituals have changed since ancient times, and the many distinctions between different divisions within Judiasm.
“Jewish funerals are not all handled the same way. While there are many similarities, there are also many differences in the way a Jewish funeral unfolds. There are so many different degrees of religious interpretation.”-Bruce Jacobs
