What is the religious significance to an unveiling of the deceased's stone? (Assuming there is)

  • I'm not sure I understand. Are you talking about the grave stone? Maybe you could elaborate more. What is this "unveiling ceremony" of the gravestone you talk about? Please edit to clarify. It's not a bad question, we just need more info. – ezra Nov 1 '17 at 3:40
  • Why assume there is? Is it some traditional part? Do you disagree with the Rishonim that there is such a thing as minhag shtut. Can't it just be a comforting closure ceremony? – mevaqesh Nov 1 '17 at 4:07
  • Highly related: judaism.stackexchange.com/q/46203/8775 about the origin of the practice. Note that according to the answers there it is not a traditional Jewish practice, and may be non Jewish in origin. – mevaqesh Nov 1 '17 at 5:20
