Analyzing the Mountain Jews’ funeral rites, which are based mainly on traditional rituals combining the relicts of pagan beliefs and Judaism’s prescriptions the paper focuses on the changes that have occurred in the last years. According to the author, funeral and memorial rites still hold an important place in the Mountain Jews’ social life.
