Mourning in Judaism

Death & Mourning
Jewish Traditions & Practice Relating to Death and Mourning
Our tradition encompasses all of life, day and night, light and dark. Even in the most difficult of situations--the imminent and then actual loss of a loved one--our Torah is there to strengthen us, to guide us, and to help us grow and see beyond our loss.
Why Do We Tear Our Clothes After a Death?
When someone passes on, it is a tragedy. They have been lost to their family and friends, and there is a feeling of separation and distance that seems beyond repair.
Why Do Bad Things Happen to Good People?
It's probably the oldest question in the history of human thought. It's surely the most disturbing, the most frequently asked and the least satisfactorily answered. Why, oh why, do bad things happen to good people?
In the midst of her mourning, the widow and mother of three of the victims of the attack on the Ozar Hatorah high school issues a heartfelt call for people around the world to carry on the memory of those whose lives were cut short.
