Judaism provides a beautiful, structured approach to mourning that involves three stages.
This article will examine the following topics: Stage one: shiva Sitting shiva Arranging the shiva house After the cemetery Timing of shiva Paying a shiva call Prayer services Leaving a shiva house The three day "shiva" Getting up from shiva Stage two: shloshim Stage three: the one-year period Annual remembrances: yizkor Yahrtzeit Unveiling of tombstone Visiting the cemetery Grief and bereavement After the burial, the immediate mourners return to a home called the "shiva house," to begin a seven day period of intense mourning. This week is called "sitting shiva," and is an emotionally and spiritually healing time where the mourners sit low, dwell together, and friends and loved ones come to comfort them with short visits referred to as "shiva calls." A person sits shiva after having lost a parent, spouse, sibling, or child.
All other loved ones are also mourned, but the observances of shiva do not apply.
This is a critical point, for if one must feel the heart-wrenching pain of grief and loss, it should be done at a time when all those around are there to help and comfort.We de-emphasize our own physicality by not pampering our bodies, so we remember that what we are missing at this time is not the physical person who is gone, but the essence of who that person was, which of course is their soul.The overall focus throughout the week is: I am a soul, my loved one is a soul.If you don't think Mayim Bialik shamed rape victims, you don't know Jewish law.I'll start by saying that I don't believe Mayim Bialik is anti-feminist or self-hating or jealous of beautiful women or any other mean or nasty thing being said about her right now in response to her opinion piece that just published in the If you haven't yet read her article, Bialik starts by describing her childhood ascent in Hollywood as a "prominent-nosed, awkward, geeky, Jewish 11-year-old."
