I woke up this morning to discover that my immediate older brother has passed away. Unfortunately I am not at home and will not be present for burial or for the entirety of shiva. I know that is not customary, but that is my current situation.
My question is this. Is there anything I can request from my local chabad or Rabbi as some sort of bereavement? I am absolutely devastated and I’ve never been this upset in my entire life. I suppose I’m just asking if there is any sort of support or i suppose any process for the death of a direct family member while you are not able to attend in person.
Thanks so much.
