When Death is Imminent
It may be a great comfort to recite the deathbed Viddui, similar to, but more personal than, the Yom Kippur Viddui. It is a confessional prayer said by the dying person or by someone on their behalf.
At Time of Death
(or when you learn of a death)
Many find comfort in reciting this ancient prayer at the time of death:
Baruch Atah Adonai, Eloheinu Melech HaOlam, Dayan Ha’emet
ברוך אתה אדני אלהינו מלך העולם דיין האמת
Blessed are You, Source of the Universe, in whose world everything has meaning.
