“And behold, the curtain of the temple was torn in two, from top to bottom. And the earth shook, and the rocks were split.”
“The most striking Jewish expression of grief is the rending of garments by the mourner prior to the funeral service.
The Bible records many instances of rending the clothes after the news of death. When Jacob saw Joseph’s coat of many colors drenched with what he thought to be his son’s blood, he rent his garments. Likewise, David tore his clothes when he heard of the death of King Saul, and Job, who knew grief so well, stood up and rent his mantle. The rending is an opportunity for psychological relief.” (http://www.chabad.org)
