Processional: Kevura (burial) took place in a Jewish cemetery.
Musical selections and Hymns: There were no hymns, per se, because Freud was Jewish. However the song Lecha Dodi was chanted by the people in attendance because Freud died on a Saturday (the Jewish Sabbath). He was buried three days later. The words of “Lecha Dodi” are: “Lecha dodi/Likrat challah/P’nei Shabbat/N’kabelah.”
Pastor/Rabbi: There was a rabbi officiating at Freud’s funeral.
Opening Prayer: “God full of mercy who dwells on high/Grant perfect rest on the wings of Your Divine Presence/In the lofty heights of the holy and pure
who shine as the brightness of the heavens
to the soul of Sigmund Freud/who has gone to his eternal rest/as all his family and friends
pray for the elevation of his soul/His resting place shall be in the Garden of Eden/Therefore, the Master of mercy will care for him
under the protection of His wings for all time/And bind his soul in the bond of everlasting life/God is his inheritance and he will rest in peace
and let us say Amen.”
