A non-Jewish co-worker who was invited to a Jewish funeral asked me how long they typically are.
I told her that, thank God, I hadn't been to many, but my understanding is that they probably vary a great deal, depending on what the family wants to do.
I expect that my answer was correct but not very helpful to someone who was trying to determine how the funeral would fit into her schedule. Do you have a better response to this question? Any clues that could help someone guess ahead of time how long the funeral will be?
