'Death and Mourning' includes the burial procedure for Jews.
Beliefs may vary depending on which strand of Judaism the deceased belongs to - Orthodox, Reform or Conservative. All Jews believe that when they die they will go to Heaven and will be with God. This next world is called ‘the world of truth’ and as death is very much seen as a part of life, it is therefore a part of God’s overall plan.
