  1. I read Rabbi Yoffie’s article. I have attended funerals (and other events) where the rabbi makes comments, and it is clear he doesn’t know the family that well. Sometimes it makes me cringe. Conversely, I have heard some members of the community or my own relatives speak beautifully and with full knowledge of how to give a hesped. The difference? Many people in the Orthodox Jewish community have extensive Jewish education.
