SYDNEY, Australia - A Jewish burial society in Melbourne is believed to be the first in Australia to offer live web streaming of funerals over the Internet.

The Melbourne Chevra Kadisha has installed a camera at the prayer houses of the two main cemeteries in Melbourne, according to a report in the Australian Jewish News.

The web streaming, which is in its trial phase, costs about $250, according to Chevra Kadisha director Fred Grossman. DVD copies of the funeral service also are available.
