The Obituary of Sigismund Schlomo Freud – Assignment Example

The paper "The Obituary of Sigismund Schlomo Freud" is an exceptional example of an assignment on religion and theology.
When Service Was Held:  Sunset
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.” 
Old Testament/Hebrew Bible Verses:  Isaiah 35:1-2

New Testament Verses:  This does not apply, as Freud was Jewish.

Eulogy:  Sigmund was an all-around great guy.  He loved listening to peoples’ problems.  He had lots of great theories that people world-wide respected.  He will be sorely missed.
Internment:  Internment was in the evening.

Wake/ Rosary Service:  This does not apply, as Freud was Jewish.

Repass:  Kavod, or paying of respects, is what happens when people accompany the casket to the burial place.
