Recently a good friend of mine passed away unexpectedly in England where he also will be buried. I plan to visit his graveside next year and I’d like to leave a visitation stone on his headstone as I think it’s a respectful gesture to show ones appreciation for the deceased. As both of us are not Jewish I’m not sure if that is appropriate to do in my situation, to my understanding this tradition developed as part of Jewish burial ceremonies. So my question about this is – Would it be deemed acceptable by the Jewish community if I adopted this cultural element? I thank you in advance for your answers
Is it acceptable to place visitation stones as a non-Jew?
