Kevod Hamet and Kevod Habriyot: The Honor of the Dead

Rabbanit Leah Sarna

8:00 pm

Hundreds of thousands of people across the globe have died of COVID-19, and, in most of those cases, the deceased were neither buried nor mourned in typical ways. In this series we will explore some of the core texts about kevod hamet, our obligation to recognize dignity in the dead. In particular, we will look at places where our texts describe kevod hamet as an extension of kevod habriyot, human dignity. What do our obligations to recognize dignity in the dead teach us about our obligations towards the living, and what do our obligations towards the living teach us about our obligations towards the dead? What happens in situations like ours, when those obligations conflict, where to maximally honor the dead would endanger the living?
