Jewish Prayers Related to Suicide

Depending on the traditions of a person’s specific Jewish community, a death by suicide can include all of the same prayers and rituals as any other death. However, we should remember the particular sensitivities around death by suicide and the family and friends who survive. We offer some prayers and rituals, written by survivors, you might use or adapt.
