Segmented Purim, Segmented Mourning

Sometimes, celebration is segmented.  Sometimes mourning is segmented.  What happens when the one we are mourning lived much of his or her life in one place; died in another city; and family and mourners live in still other locations?

This article originally  appeared as part of the blog series “Expired and Inspired” on issues of death, illness, end of life, and mourning. This is sponsored by the Gamliel Institute, part of Kavod v’Nichum, a Jewish education and training program for volunteers and professionals working especially with issues of death and mourning.
