The Jewish tradition of placing stones or rocks on graves dates back thousands of years.
Jews first began marking graves with piles of stones in ancient times as a way to warn passing priests that they should stay back. (It was thought the priests would become “impure” if they came within four feet of a corpse.) Later, the stones served as a way of keeping loved ones’ souls close to the earth, where it would comfort those left behind. In modern times, the stones represent a more lasting symbol of remembrance and legacy as compared to flowers.
Each large rock is carved with the word "Remember."
