Washing the Dead by Michelle Brafman

No, this is not some scary Halloween story. The unusual title Washing the Dead refers to a sacred Jewish ritual, and in this novel the ritual helps to strengthen the bond between mothers and daughters. Set in Milwaukee and alternating between the 1970s and 2009, main character Barbara is a teen in 1973 who is being raised in an Orthodox Jewish family. Their shul (church) is in an old mansion that was donated anonymously and also provides the living quarters for the rabbi's family.
