dying.

passage to another phase of existence (Cremation Institute, n.d.).
• The recitation of the Shema in the last moments before death help to
affirm faith in God precisely when it is most challenged.

closed, the body is laid on the floor
and covered, and candles are lit next
to the body.

thoroughly cleaned and wrapped in a
simple, plain linen shroud (Gordon,
n.d.).

organs or fluids may be removed.
