el-maley(Separate prayer for men or women)

El Maleh Rahamim (God full of compassion) is a prayer for the departed that is recited at funeral services, on visiting the graves of relatives (especially during the month of Elul), and after having been called up to the reading of the Torah on the yartzheit (anniversary of the death) of a close relative.

The prayer has a section where the name of the departed is included to personalize the prayer and there are separate prayers for men and women due to the Hebrew grammar of the prayer.
