While no one is ever completely prepared for the loss of a loved one, it is possible to be aware of the details that must be managed to plan a Jewish funeral. Understanding the process before it becomes immediate can make the difficult time of grief less stressful. When examined in advance, mourners can be prepared for what traditions and practices are necessary within the Jewish faith.
Protestants are non-Catholic Christians who are members of denominations including Lutherans, Methodists, Presbyterians and Baptists. Each Protestant denomination will have its own traditions and practices for the funeral service. Each service would be officiated by an ordained minister or member of the clergy of the denomination. Family and friends may play a significant role in the planning and presentation of the service.
