In 1982, I prepared a Guide to Jewish Mourning and Condolence for members of Valley
Beth Shalom, a Conservative synagogue in Encino, California. The booklet was subsequently
distributed nationally to other Conservative synagogues throughout the United States.
I have recently updated the Guide and converted it into even more useful hyperlinked
electronic format. The new version is now available to the community at large as
a public service of Valley Beth Shalom. You can download it for personal use without
charge here. You can find other helpful materials on this topic at the VBS website
