An unveiling can be as small as one person or as large as 100. It is done for the comfort of those immediately mourning and what is best for them is to be used to guide the process of an unveiling. Unveilings decreased in popularity during the 70's and 80's and then slowly found a rebirth as we entered the late 90's and the last ten years. Families enjoy the opportunity to go to the cemetery as a group, say a few prayers, have an opportunity to see the memorial, and in a small way, have some type of closure.

An unveiling is an American tradition, not Jewish Law. Our literature on "What is an Unveiling" explains the simple service in detail. In summary, we find, as one of the largest memorial dealers servicing the Jewish community, almost all of our families do some type of unveiling, far more than we have seen over the last 20 years. We find that most families see the unveiling as a place to see the stone, reflect and find the cemetery to be a place for more than just a funeral.
