STAR WARS themed funeral fulfills 4-year-old's final wish. There is nothing more tragic in this world than the death of a child but 4-year-old Jack Robinson, who passed away early last week due to an inoperable brain tumor, at least got to do so in the manner he had dreamed.
Tachrichim (burial shrouds) are traditional simple white burial garments, usually made from 100% pure linen, in which Jews are dressed by the Chevra Kadisha for burial after undergoing a taharah (ritual purification). Shrouds are white and entirely hand-stitched. They are made without buttons, zippers, or fasteners. Tahrihim come in muslin or linen. Regardless of gender, they include shirt, pants, a head covering, and a belt and winding cloth.
