Dying Alone

By Amy Eilberg

Fulfilling the mitzvot regarding how to care for those who are sick, dying, dead, and the bereaved remind individuals of their own mortality and humanity. Further, in fulfilling these mitzvot, which ease the loneliness a dying person feels or the suffering a grieving person feels, individuals are reminded of their connection to all others.
