Shmirah is a chesed shel emet, an act of lovingkindness, which is a final act of compassion toward our departing fellow Jews and is greatly appreciated by the deceased’s family.

In Jewish tradition, volunteer Shomrim watch over the deceased from the time of death until they are buried because the neshama (soul) is believed to be present until the time of burial.
Mary has Shmirah tomorrow at the neighborhood Funeral Home. She and her friends take turns being the Shomrim.
