Eija and I have opened the first Montreal Photo Gallery:
https://cohen.1g.fi/kuvat/Montreal+Memo ... n's+Grave/

In this gallery we have photos of the Cohen Family Grave in Congregation Shaar Hashomayim.
We took pictures on two days: on November 3 (before most of our members arrived) and then again on November 9, after the Memorial Concert. In the later pictures you can see much more little stones and other farewell gifts placed by visitors.
- The Jewish tradition of leaving stones on a grave is an ancient one, and its origins are unclear. It is a custom or tradition, rather than a commandment, and over time many interpretations have been offered for this practice. Flowers, though beautiful, will eventually die. A stone will not die, and can symbolize the permanence of memory and legacy. Read other common explanations for this custom here: https://www.myjewishlearning.com/articl ... on-graves/
Click on the thumbnails to see the photos in larger size. The photos can also be downloaded for your private use.

Other Galleries are in construction - more tomorrow.

Update Nov 17: please note that the URL to this Gallery has been changed (I edited the gallery names). New URL is above.

Thanks for the nice photo’s! We were there on Saturday morning November 4t and then the place was still very quiet with only a few memorabilia on the headstone. That has grown significantly since then as the pictures show. I do like all the little stones but am not sure what to think of all the ‘gimmick’s and other stuff placed on the grave. But it sure represents the fact that he is still in a lot of peoples minds and hearts. Looking forward to the other photo’s!
