Does civil burial confict with religious burial?Secular burial (civil burial) does not conflict with or oppose religious burial. Civil burial makes no restrictions on the way the leave-taking ceremony is to be conducted, its processes, or its content, and there is no reason not to include traditional religious features in the secular burial ceremony.
Tearing the garment as a sign of mourning, Kaddish, and the Ayl Malay Rachamim prayer are the best-known religious features, and their inclusion in the secular funeral service depends only on your wishes, and the preferences of the family. Furthermore, there is no reason to feel that a Rabbi cannot participate in a secular burial. Aley Shalechet has Rabbis and cantors from all the branches of Judaism, and these spiritual leaders can be integrated into the secular burial service.
Practically speaking, the choice is up to you. Aley Shalechet is set up to conduct ceremonies of any nature and character as you determine they should be from a secular burial without any religious features at all to a full religious funeral service.
