Questioning faith in the parsha

Who Knows Kaddish by Binnie Kirshenbaum

First there is this business with the yarmulkes…

The rabbi wants my father, my brother, and my Uncle Alex to wear yarmulkes even though we are in a non-denominational funeral home, which is nothing like a synagogue. This funeral home is indeed a house, a white colonial set behind a circular driveway and maple trees. It’s a house which speaks in well-modulated tones of the affluent and the understated. It is the only funeral home in town not affiliated with an Episcopal or Presbyterian church.
