ABSTRACT
The aim of this article is to demonstrate the relationships between the Internet's and the Israeli culture of mourning and memorialization. The study examines the question as to whether the Internet renews the culture of mourning and memorialization, and what are the characteristic traits of expression of very painful and difficult emotions of bereavement over the Internet in the Israeli context. In contrast to other media, the Internet integrates personal and mass media. It has, in fact, created a new mode of human communication, enabling participants to take part in two-way communication. Users of the World Wide Web are no longer passive audiences of data consumers as in media such as television and radio, but are active participants controlling the contents of the desired information. They shape the quality of the data and respond to them. On-line communication on the Internet facilitates the expression of emotions output and the input of emotional messages, thus developing and reinforcing important social ties between users, forming a system of relationships similar to ties of family and friendship, all taking place without participants being physically present.
