Acafoth is a peculiar ceremony observed by some of the modern Jews on the continent of Europe. When a Jew has died and the coffin has been nailed down, ten chosen persons of the chief relatives and friends of the deceased turn seven times round the coffin, offering up all the while their prayers to God for his departed soul.
