Unveiling of the Stone

After about 11 months a stone is placed on a grave. Often there is a short ceremony at the graveside for this occasion. It is not necessary to have a Rabbi for this, but it is nice. Prayers and sharing of memories at this time gives a feeling of warmth with the memories and comfort after almost a year has passed. It is a good time for the family to get together to reflect.
