A good very friend of mine just had his father pass away this morning. Although I have known this person about 4...almost 5 years, we connect on many levels. About 10 months ago, on his offer, I went to work for the same firm where he was working and he has since become my boss. We now work together and our relationship remains the same in terms of respect, etc, as before.
For the past 6 weeks he has been delaing with his father, who had been ill, and this morning I received notification his father had passed. I will be going to the Temple to show my respects and attend Shiva (sp?) with him and his family one day during the week.
I have never been to Jewish ceremonies of any kind as I am not Jewish, so I am looking for advice on what to wear, what to bring (if anything) and how to go about it in general. Since I am not familiar, I don't want to offend anyone with my ignorance.
Any help appreciated.
