Kriah for sad events in general


One tears in mourning for other events, besides loss of a relative. For example, one who is present at the moment of a death tears, too.

Note that there is some debate about the obligation for hospital staff, who may be present for many such events.

(Code of Jewish Law Yoreh Deah 340:5)

Have a good day,
