Shloshim

Even though the Shiva has ended, one is considered a mourner for twelve months for a parent, and until the Shloshim (the thirtieth day from burial) for other relatives. During these twenty-three days, the intensity of mourning is reduced. However, some restrictions continue to remain in effect. You should consult with Rabbi Jacobson for complete guidance in all of these matters. The Shloshim is marked with the family gathering at the synagogue special prayers are recited and a Kiddush or a breakfast is prepared in honor of the departed. Please contact Rabbi Jacobson to make the arrangements.
