Hakamat Matzevah: Dedicating a Monument or Gravestone
These ceremonies are not merely “unveilings.” The traditional Jewish understanding is that dedicating a memorial marker to our loved ones is a profound gesture that further consecrates a sacred spot. These ceremonies are not restricted just to cemeteries or mausoleums. In an increasing list of other important locations, families increasingly seek to mark the holy ground that connects them with the memories of their loved ones. From public parks to school-side playgrounds, benches by a bike path to bronze memorial plaques at a hospice, Jewtique: Concierge Rabbinic Services can help you to memorialize the values that your loved ones wish to leave as a legacy.
