Within the Jewish faith, it is customary to leave a small stone on the grave. Placing a stone on the grave serves as a sign to others that someone has visited the grave. It also enables visitors to partake in the mitzvah tradition of commemorating the burial and the deceased. Stones are fitting symbols of the lasting presence of the deceased's life and memory. In 2010, my son's 8th grade class visited Wash.DC., we found out a few weeks before hand of a great aunt that was buried at Arlington Memorial, as her husband was in the military. My son's teacher arranged for bus driver to find our aunt's grave so Mack could leave stones. In the photo, is my son placing stones on our aunt's grave. Have you heard of this custom, maybe done it yourself?
