A Tradition of Remembrance
In Jewish custom, the placement of a memorial stone is traditionally marked with an unveiling ceremony, held at the graveside. By tradition, the timing of this ceremony is generally one year after the death of the loved one. Relatives and friends gather for prayers, remembrance, and removal of a symbolic cover placed over the stone.
