Add comment on:Jewish LGBT Community Commemorates the Death of Two at a Gay Center in Tel Aviv
In the Jewish tradition, ashkava (“laying down“), the ceremony which takes place when someone dies, is an emotional process, that all family members of the deceased must go though for a year. This process is a sad movement from grief back to life embodied in ceremonies and prayers in which we reflect on our actions in relation to the dead, doing a hesbon hanefesh, a self criticism.
