Israeli Funeral - continued
At the conclusion of the seven day mourning period, the family visits the grave site and recites prayers for the visitation. Once the prayers have concluded, the family gathers at a table at the cemetery and has some cake and fruit before departing the grounds. In thirty days from the time of the person's death, family and friends will gather again to visit the grave site to remember their loved one.
