Funeral Service for a Miscarriage: A Jewish Mourning Story

By BimBam (formerly G-dcast)

Rabbi Chai was going through a difficult time trying to have a child, and as a rabbi, she knew that the Jewish ritual tradition didn’t have anything built in to support her through pregnancy loss. With a friend, she created a funeral service to mark and honor the moment. It helped her not only feel held by her community but also to see herself as part of Jewish history.

As part of Ritualwell's partnership with BimBam (formerly G-dcast), we present a series of videos that share personal stories about Jewish lifecycle events. 

BimBam (formerly G-dcast) is a new media studio making Jewish videos, apps and animated series that are joyful, empowering introductions to Jewish ideas and life for kids & adults. To learn more about BimBam, visit http://www.bimbam.com.

The Lifecycles Project was made possible with generous support from The Koret Foundation, as part of their Initiative on Jewish Peoplehood.
