Matt- In the Jewish tradition, there is usually no wake and, instead, their is a memorial service followed by a funeral and then, sometimes, a period of seven days of mourning in which the family receives visitors. Due to the sudden nature of Steve's death, it would not surprise me if the family did not have open shiva (the time period after death to receive guests). The memorial service, however, is listed in the Bergen Record as being at 10 am on Tuesday at Gutterman-Musicant Funeral Home in Hackensack, NJ.

May Steve's memory be a blessing.
