Jewish funeral services

Jewish funerals are traditionally only 20 minutes in length and the different elements will vary depending on the rituals of the three sects (Reformed, Conservative and Orthodox). While brief, your Mareena Purslowe funeral director can work with your Rabbi to ensure your service is a personalised and memorable reflection of your loved one’s journey.

What to expect

Our Jewish funeral services usually contain the below elements:

  • Recitation of Psalms and selected prayers Eyl Malei Rahamim (the traditional memorial prayer)
  • A eulogy (hesped) honouring the deceased

It’s of utmost importance to us that the service is a meaningful experience for you and your family. If you would like to make a special request or tailor any parts of the service, speak with our team on (08) 9388 1623 and we will help ensure the service does justice to the memory of your loved one and is a true reflection of their life’s journey.
