Hesped.org

Hesped.org is an online archive collecting material on Jewish funerals and mourning customs.

Archive Description

Hesped.org is a growing collection of eulogies (hespedim) delivered at Jewish funerals and during the traditional seven day mourning period (the shiva), as well as during some stone settings. It was created to collect the stories of ordinary and extraordinary lives through this unique and powerful medium.

The archive hopes to expand its collection and is currently collecting hespedim. More information on collection policies can be found on their website, and the archive can be contacted by emailing contact@hesped.org.

Online Accessibility

The archive can be found online, accessible for free, and with a built in search function.
