Panels

In the washing house there are ten panels explaining in brief some Jewish funeral rites. The text of these panels can be found below.

In the Jewish tradition, the death and the final farewell of a loved one are considered an essential part of human existence. That existence does not end when life departs from the body. For the deceased person, a new day arises in a future celestial world.This principle of faith forms the basis for Jewish rules and traditions in dealing with death.

The panels in this washing house give a bird's eye view of some of these rules and traditions.
