Jewish Monuments

Most jewish monuments (matzayva) are erected about a year after burial. The origin of this custom has its roots in several sources. Survivors of a death in the family many not be emotionally able to handle the stress of visiting a burial site. After twelve months, grief has had time to subside and the family may be better able to deal with a graveside visit.

Jewish monuments sometimes bear the name of the deceased in Hebrew followed by the father's name, also in Hebrew, while the mother's name is omitted. In biblical times, surnames did not exist and men were known, for example, as "Isaac, the Son of Abraham." No mention was made of Sarah, the Wife of Abraham.
