(p. 30) Shared family rituals—holiday celebrations, christenings, confirmations, bar mitzvahs, graduations, weddings, funerals, wakes—are part of ongoing family interaction patterns that help ensure family identity and continuity. Rituals are symbolic actions that help families adapt to change rather than struggle against it, at the same time that they reaffirm their group unity in dealing with a life transition. They anchor family members to the past, providing a sense of family history and rootedness, while at the same time implying future family interactions.
