Funerals

Unveiling of Tombstones

Since ancient times, it has been the custom to mark the grave with a stone or monument - after Rachel died, "Jacob erected a monument on Rachel's grave" (Genesis 35:20). The marker or monument serves to identify the grave so that relatives will find it when they visit, honour the memory of the deceased, and identify a place of burial so that kohanim (priests) will avoid it as required by Jewish law. 

Cremation

While Scripture does not leave us in the dark as to what happens to man’s soul/spirit after death, the question as to what happens (or should happen) to the body is being asked more and more lately. Of course, the Bible is clear as to what happens to the body at the resurrection.
